Yarn Needed! Women of the ELCA are knitting hats for Seafarers and sending them to the Seafarer’s International House to be distributed ALL YEAR LONG! Most of the recipients are men so darker colors are appreciated. The preferred yarn is Red Heart Super Saver or any worsted weight yarn - NOT WOOL. There is a collection box in the Fellowship Hall, you can also find pattern directions attached to the box!  If you have any questions, please see Leisa North or contact the church office.

Blankets Needed! Blankets are needed for the refugee and asylum-seeking families in our area, most of whom come from warmer climates and without many possessions. RRRS is hoping to receive at least 75 blankets in order to provide a minimum of 1 blanket per family. There is a box in the foyer labeled "Blankets for RRRS" to collect donations.

Winter Accessories Needed! We are collecting winter accessories in gently used or new condition (boots, hats, gloves, winter appropriate socks) - all sizes, and coats for teens & adults.


If you have a donation but can’t get it to the church, please email Lisa North and she’ll be happy to pick it up!
