Fall Newsletter

 

In 2016-2017, we reference our Philoptochos is~ Philanthropy ~ Fellowship ~ Faith in Action theme as we look for opportunities to provide support to charities that help people.

 

On Sunday, October 2, Philoptochos  honored Pink Sunday –Breast Cancer Awareness by providing breast cancer information and resources.

We also collected $317 in monetary and gift card donations, for those affected by the Louisiana floods.

On Monday, October 3, Philoptochos hosted a general meeting and “Books and Blankets” service project. Over 25 parish members gathered for some great fellowship. We tasted delicious new recipes during the pot luck dinner and listened to a very informative report from our chapter delegates, Linda Vleisides and Heidi Wood, about highlights from the 2016 National Philoptochos Convention.  We also tied 30 cozy fleece blankets which were each paired with a children’s book and provided to Center Schools’ Parents as Teachers program.

During this meeting, the group brainstormed

and came up with a fundraising idea to answer a

request from National Philoptochos.

Annunciation Ladies Philoptochos  took

on a challenge to “Make a Change” for IOCC.

A collection jar was located in the church hall

for parishioners to donate their spare change to IOCC.

Wednesday, October 26th and Friday, October 28th –  Philoptochos  baked for the Bake Sale

and

Saturday November 5th and Sunday, November 6th Philoptochos held the Fall Bake Sale Fundraiser.

Thank you to all who supported this fundraiser and to all who helped spread the word, bake, package orders and work the day of the sale.
