THE BISHOP’S IN-KIND APPEAL

 Please help Episcopal Charities collect critical supplies requested by the Keys

 We shall be shipping critical Phase 1 recovery items requested by our churches in the Keys on Monday, 25 September.  This list consists of clean-up supplies and specific basic non-food living items currently in short supply.   Due to severe space constraints in the Keys where 11,000 homes are damaged and 60+ people are living at Saint Columba’s, please collect ONLY the following items at this time, and hold any other items for subsequent phases of our Keys Appeal when more livable space has been reclaimed.

We are very grateful to American Van Lines for donating a truck and drivers for this delivery.

 Please deliver all items to the drop-off points before 10 AM MONDAY, 25 SEPTEMBER

 They will be packed and loaded on the truck in Oakland Park at 10am Monday morning, followed by a pick-up stop at Saint Andrew’s, Palmetto Bay, on the way to Saint Columba’s in Marathon.
