Jesus said, “Love one another.” What does that look like? Everyone’s answer would be different. We, at The Good News Center, have decided to help those less fortunate through a program of the same name by being the hands of Jesus.
For this past Christmas season, we collected toiletries with a goal of making 80 bags for men and 80 for women to distribute to the clients of Hope House. While government aid helps those with financial need, those funds can only be used for food. Hygiene products are not included.
Our Love One Another program has started the new year off with warmth and love we delivered crocheted baby blankets and infant hats and mittens to CareNet along with lap blankets and shawls to The Pines Nursing/Rehabilitation Facility.
Thank you to all who donated your time, talents and materials.
You have made this possible!❤️
Both CareNet and The Pines were truly grateful for all the items.
This is a very successful program and it continues with a group of ladies who are working on baby blankets, lap blankets and shawls. If you would like to learn how to crochet, please join us we will teach you.
Our next project for Love One Another was our diaper and baby formula drive. We collected donations of newborn and size 1 baby diapers and any type of baby formula. All donations were distributed to CareNet Pregnancy Center of CNY and Historic Old St. John's Church in Utica.
This past September we collected school supplies for Thea Bowmen House in Utica.
A big Thank you goes out to our Good News friends that have been so generous with all the donations.
If you know of a need that we can fulfill, please let us know and, if we can, we will try to accommodate it. Thank you to all who have participated in this program.
Our crocheting group will be back in the building starting on Wednesday, October 14th from 12:30-1:30 PM if you are interested in helping out or want to learn how to crochet please call us at 315-735-6210.
