Outreach Opportunities

Books for School 6
For the fifth year we are going to try to give every child at School 6 in Buffalo a brand new book of their very own. That is 600 (actually 611) books. 

We need books at all reading levels from picture books through Harry Potter.  Pick out a couple of your favorite books (or your kid’s favorite books) and bring them in.  There are lists of suggested titles on posters in the parish hall and the foyer – along with a tracking of what grade levels we need books for.

We are also collecting socks and hats and gloves along with the books. 

We will bless the books on January 7 and send them off to the school with our Epiphany blessings.

If you are planning on bringing books on January 7, please let Pastor Vicki know (paulsrector@gmail.com or 632-8221) how many books you are bringing and approximately what grade level.

Hearts and Hands
Hearts and Hands Faith in Action is a ministry that helps senior citizens stay independent by providing volunteers help.

St. Paul’s is a sponsoring congregation for Hearts and Hands.  The ministry works because people volunteer to do what they can.  They have particular needs for people to drive clients to appointments and for minor home repairs. 

Hearts and Hands will provide training and screening for volunteers – they then coordinate their clients needs with the availability of volunteers.  Hearts and Hands cover their volunteers with liability insurance and can pay mileage reimbursement if you need it.

There is a flyer on the Outreach bulletin board in the hallway with information on how to contact Hearts and Hands to get more information or to volunteer.
