Penny Possibilities

Find out more about how collections for Pennies to Prosperity – what we’ve called Penny Possibilities – help people become self-sufficient.

By providing a small amount of capital (Pennies), people are able to start and expand small businesses, pay school fees, save money and plan for unanticipated emergencies (to Prosperity).

Contact Deacon Peggy for more information.

Trunk Sale August 6

The Episcopal Church Women of St. Alban’s are having a TRUNK SALE on Saturday, August 6th from 10 am to 2 pm.

Save the date to stop by and shop!

If you have items to donate, here’s how it works….

Gather your sale items. We’re requesting no clothing please. Also no electronics, mattresses, tires or other items that cannot be donated to St. Vinny’s at the end of the sale. Price them, and pack into your car.

Come early (8:30ish) to park your vehicle in the church parking lot.

Display your ‘wares’ in your open trunk, on nearby folding tables, or blankets near your car. Bring along your coffee and a folding chair, then sit back and wait for the shoppers to arrive!

All sales will benefit ECW. The items will be purchased at a table at the parking lot entrance where Dolores & her team will pack /bag items and collect payments. A little effort from each of us can make this an easy-going fundraiser for ECW.

We will have a sign-up on the bulletin board so we can plan our sale. Please join in!

This will take the place of our “Attic (2nd Time Around) Treasures” where we have previously sold such items at our November Bazaar. We are hoping that a summer sale will allow the Bazaar committee to focus on the other highlights of our holiday event.

Directory

A new directory is now available: Pick up a copy on Sunday or next time you are in the church!

Episcopal Relief and Development

When you give to Episcopal Relief and Development, where does that money go? Since last year, the Nepal Earthquake Response Fund has provided support for immediate and longer-term recovery. More recently, donations to the US Disaster Response Fund aid those displaced by floods in West Virginia and Texas.

From the website at http://www.episcopalrelief.org/what-we-do:

Episcopal Relief & Development works with Church partners and other local organizations to save lives and transform communities worldwide. We rebuild after disasters and empower people to create lasting solutions that fight poverty, hunger and disease. Working in close to 40 countries, our programs impact the lives of approximately 3 million people around the world.
