Puerto Rico Benefit written by Pegge Cook
My nephew’s wife is from Puerto Rico. We traveled there for their wedding 7 years ago. Recently, they traveled from South Carolina to spend Christmas with her family. During their stay, they were rocked out of bed by an earthquake that measured 6.4 on the Richter scale. Her parent’s home was a mess but it was still a house. Others were not so lucky. Like thousands of others, they slept outside that night. Many are sleeping outside still. Some because their houses collapsed or are unsafe. Others because they are terrified of being inside. My nephew and niece are now home safe but her family is living this nightmare along with thousands of others of others who have sustained terrible loss. Schools have been condemned, hospitals are unsafe and overflowing, roads are impassable. Lori sent me a list of needs and where to send them. I am asking for donations of cold medicines, Benadryl, Tylenol, bug repellent, sun block, hand sanitizer, wrapped snacks, zip lock bags and batteries. The full list will be posted on the bulletin board however; I am hoping to only collect lightweight items that will not cost a fortune to ship. I would like to collect items through February and will pack and ship all to the address she provided.
Sunday school kids will pack on February 16th and the complete bags will be delivered to Bread of Life in Colden. We are asking the congregation to participate in the donation of the food items.
*This year’s “Meal-in-a-bag” mission will be Chicken and wild rice casserole.
If you would like to participate in this mission please bring in and deposit items at the box under the bulletin board:
1 box Long Grain Wild Rice Mix - Uncle Ben's, 6oz, preferably the quick cook option
- 10 or 12 ounce can of chicken
- 15 ounce can green beans
- 10 ounce can cream of mushroom soup
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds packet = 1.24 oz, which may be hard to find, so the closest bag in size available is good
