Winter Relief is Coming – February 5-12
The Crofton community's hosting of Winter Relief is scheduled for February 5 - 12, 2024.
You'll be seeing a lot more info about it as it grows closer but for now, here are dates
and activities to keep in mind.
TOILETRY COLLECTION - will begin January 7th and run continuously until January 31st. Please set aside unused toiletries from your hotel stays so that guests will have grooming and health supplies during their overnight stay in Crofton.
UNDIES SUNDAY -- January 21st is the day to bring packages of NEW adult men's underwear, socks, and flannel undies to fill the laundry basket that will be in the
narthex. Please look for good sales, share that info with your church family, and please
be generous in your donations.
So, WHAT is Winter Relief???? Winter Relief is a county-wide effort to provide safe,
indoor overnight shelter in wintertime for a number of homeless men and women.
Here in the Crofton area, the effort is shared by seven congregations with
Seton Roman Catholic parish hosting the guests. The other six congregations take turns
providing meals and other items to make the week a community success. The toiletries
we donate will be given to the guests for their bathing needs. The underwear and socks
will be similarly given to the guests as needed. And then, during the week, St. Paul's
will provide one morning's breakfasts, one day's lunches, and one evening's meal for
the Winter Relief guests. Our Quilters donate individual quilts for guests to use. So you see, there are lots of ways to contribute to this Outreach ministry.

Thanks so much for your kind attention and your generous donations of time, talent, and treasure!! -- Penny C.
