IN May WE ARE COLLECTING Peanut Butter and Jelly.

In April, St. Michael's donated 37 cans of pasta, 3 4-packs of pasta, 11 boxes of dried pasta, 5 boxes of macaroni & cheese pasta dinners, 15 cans of fruit, 6 boxes of cereal, 2 cans of tuna, 1 can of soup, and one "complete" meal. Also 1 box of 92 diapers and 1 box of 70 diapers, and 133 pairs of socks.
The Village Outreach center tells us that diapers are needed more than socks at this time - and thanks us for our generosity!

1st, 3rd & 5th Saturdays of each month 
9:30 meet and help prepare & serve lunch
11:00 gather at the Prayer Table and Greet Visitors
Inquire if they would like prayer for someone or something 

There is always a need for socks. It is a joy to give a new pair of socks to someone who is without. Thank you for donating socks to this ministry. Socks may be placed in the bin in the church narthex.
Albany County Nursing Home residents love small blankets & prayer shawls. St. Peter’s NICU newborns need small, soft, warm caps. Hand-made items, knitting & crochet supplies donated to this ministry are appreciated. Thank you for leaving them in the 'Knitting Bin' in the church narthex. 
On the 1st Sunday each month at 3:45 & help with serving dinner.
Travel size toiletries are perfect for Mission Guests.
