Please mark your calendars for Sunday, October 27. That is the date for the Outreach Fundraiser. This activity provides the major share of the income that goes to support Epworth’s wonderful Outreach programs such as the Haiti Mission, tutoring, disaster recovery, Families Moving Forward, and various Durham ministries. Our backpack ministry is funded separately.
The Outreach Fundraiser will be on Sunday, October 27 in the Fellowship Hall after the 11:00 a.m. service and includes lunch. Some of the items and activities we’ve had in the past include:
- Vacation home “rentals”
- Basketball tickets
- Performance or event tickets
- Lessons for learning a skill
- Handmade craft items
- Meals either at a restaurant or delivered to your home
- “Handyman” work around the house
- Bake sale
- Books and DVD sale
- And many more!
This year we will not have a “gently-used” table. Items that generally show up there are best suited to a yard sale, which Outreach may sponsor next spring. If you have donated items or services at past fundraisers, we’ll probably contact you, unless you would rather we didn’t. If you wish to volunteer, donate, or help in any way, please contact Bill Matteson. Here is a link to our donation form: https://forms.gle/AWS9ey69YauzaGRD8
