Generosity isn't dead in this area! Shortly after the Black Forest wildfire in Colorado, it was noted that close to 500 homes were destroyed, and of course, the residents had lost everything. Upon being asked, several churches, prayer shawl ministries and local individuals began contributing handmade knit and crocheted winter items.
On Oct. 15, more than 100 hats, 50 scarves, 16 afghans (crib to full bed size) 14 dishcloths and other assorted items were delivered to The Church at Woodmoor in Woodmoor, Col., where they were blessed and then taken to a distribution center in the Black Forest area. Members of St. Paul's UCC, St. Pius X, and Sharon Lutheran (all in Selinsgrove) plus Otterbein UMC, Mt. Pleasant UMC, Millers Crossroads UMC, Faith UMC and Zion Lutheran (all in Sunbury) plus individual residents contributed to the request.
It is heartening and gratifying to know there are so many generous, compassionate and concerned individuals in this locale, and they are all to be sincerely thanked for their efforts.
