Cares and Concerns

We LOVE our members!

Our hearts go out to all who are sick or hurting in some way.  I want to thank Lynda Schumann for taking such great care of keeping us informed on how we can help our Altrusa neighbors!  There are many ways to pray for our neighbors right now:
Praise for Juan & Leticia!  Juan is in remission.
Prayer is needed for the following -
Cindy Black as she recovers from surgery.
Dorothy & Jim Granfor as Jim fights this virus.
Donna Wright's brother-in-law, Richard Moore, as he fights the virus.
Donna Childress's husband Tony who is fighting the virus.
Kelli Alsup's mom as she recovers at home with the family.
Kay Callin's family as they grieve the loss of her father in law.
Betty Thrasher as she grieves the loss of her husband.
If I have forgotten anyone, I truly apologize!!
Hands-On Project

Feed My Sheep

We will serve a hot meal to 150 who are homeless or in need in Temple.  We have several ways you can get involved with this project in a safe way.

1. We need approx. 4-5 members to assemble bags with items for distribution.  We will socially distance at Julie Ruiz's home located at 3111 Kensington Ct., Temple.

2. We have 14 lasagnas that need to be picked up on Sat.10-12 at Juilie Ruiz's home, baked, and delivered to Kolache Kitchen #1 by 10am on Monday 7/20.  I will be glad to bring the lasagna to your car for pick up.    If you bake a lasagna, please have it hot & delivered to Kolache Kitchen #1 by 10am.  If you place it in your trunk or back seat, we will come out and get it from you.

3. We will assemble the meals in individual containers at Kolache Kitchen #1 10-11 on Monday, 7/20.  It is required that you wear a mask in the shop.

4. We need a couple members to distribute the meals at Feed My Sheep 11:30-12:30 on Monday, 7/20.  The meals are distributed outside so we will not be in the building as usual.  This is to help limit contact and you must wear a mask.

This is our first hands on project of the year.  I welcome ideas on how we can be even safer in the future.  Love Your Neighbor!

"All of us, at some time or other, need help.  Whether we're giving or receiving help, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world.  That's one of the things that connects us as neighbors - in our own way, each one of us is a giver and a receiver".  Fred Rogers
