► What you need to know this week

• Wondrous thanks from the Outreach Committee – We are overwhelmed by the generosity of the Walton congregation to our White Gift campaign in our especially difficult year. Thank you for your contributions of knitting, toys, gift cards and donations.
– We delivered to Kerr Street Mission 50 hats, 10 scarves, 50 gloves/mitts, 50 pairs of socks. – We delivered to Wesley Urban Ministries 18 hat/scarf sets, 146 hats, 53 scarves, 11 headbands, 16 gloves/mitts and 100 pairs of socks.
– As well you donated $615 in gift cards and almost $3,000 in donations to be spent by the agency where most needed.
Considering the extra effort getting all of this to the church – cheques and items, even through the mail slot, we are more than ever grateful for your response. Please know that every item and every dollar has been gratefully received as a welcome sign that people care about other people.
