Throughout the month of October we are collecting new underwear (Men’s and Ladies’ S,M,L), socks long underwear, shoelaces, phone chargers and feminine hygiene supplies for the Inn From the Cold Shelter in Newmarket. Items can be dropped off at the church on Wednesday when the office is open (9:30 a.m. to noon), Thursdays (10:30 to noon), Sunday mornings, or leave a message at the office to make alternative arrangements.
