The Faith in Action Team challenges you to add ONE item when you go to the grocery store, make a stop at the dollar store, or do other shopping.  Pick up something extra for one of the collection bins in the narthex.  They include those for Ministry with Community, the VA Hospital, the mental health unit at Borgess Hospital, the YWCA Domestic Assault Shelter, the food pantry, and the Kalamazoo Free Store.  While all these are on-going needs, FIAT wants to highlight the VA Hospital in the next few weeks.  LiFT (Ladies in Fellowship Together) has made Valentine cards for the hospital.  Wouldn’t it be great to have gifts to go along with them?  Among things needed are:

Hairbrushes, Conditioner, Lotion, Body Wash,
Alcohol-free deodorant, Wide-toothed combs,
Tank Tops, Tee shirts, Socks, Gloves, Hats - knitted & ball caps,
Sweatshirts & Sweatpants, Thin-lined markers:
