Spring 2022 Service Project Donation Each spring the Youth program at St. Bart's chooses a community outreach organization to support. This year we chose the emergency domestic violence shelter, Through These Doors, located in Portland. The response from the congregation was so generous and we filled an incredible amount of their wish list items! Our congregation donated:
8 sets of sheets
18 pairs of PJs
1 Keurig coffee maker
1 coffee press
18 packs of needed diapers
76 pairs of underwear/ 6 bras
10 bottles of body wash/ 10 conditioners/ 7 bottles of lotion/ 10 deodorant sticks
19 tubes of toothpaste
Thank you for keeping the “light” of love and hope and peace shining for those experiencing domestic violence in our community!
