When the winter and cold temperatures approach, our homeless friends need long underwear. In response, the Community Advocacy Committee has UNDEE SUNDAY every November. Along with your pledge of talents and dollars during the stewardship season, please think of giving this small token of love to our needy friends. Please bring at least one set of long johns and deposit them in the box provided in the narthex of the church in order to fill this need for Friendship House. In case you cannot find long underwear, please make a monetary donation.
Undee Sunday During COVID
The Community Advocacy Committee is still planning to collect sets of long underwear to give to the Friendship House Clothing Bank but the method of collection will be different in 2020. Dariel Janerette and Eudel Drain are heading this year’s collection project. The committee has committed $500 from the AIM Fund to purchase sets of underwear. Members of SsAM who would also like to contribute can mail a check to SsAM with “AIM – Undee Sunday” on the memo line. Please send in your contribution no later than October 18 so that the underwear can be purchased and taken to the Clothing Bank by November 1.
MAIL CHECKS BY OCTOBER 18 TO:
Saints Andrew & Matthew
719 N. Shipley Street
Wilmington, DE 19801-1711
The Community Advocacy Committee thanks all of you who helped make UNDEE SUNDAY success in 2019. Twenty-four complete sets of thermal underwear were donated and with your generous cash contributions, we were able to purchase an additional 84 pairs of thermal underwear for our needy friends. Thank you for your participation in this worthy cause. And a special thanks to Phil and Susan Murphree for organizing this ministry.
