The Canaan Congregational Church Missions Committee continues to sponsor both local and wider missions. Wider missions include monetary donations to the United Church of Christ (UCC) responses for hurricane relief, Neighbors in Need, and One Great Hour of Sharing. Local missions include food donations to the Chatham Area Silent Pantry. And the church responded generously to the Chatham-Area School Supplies Weekend appeal by delivering two full boxes of church-donated school supplies to St. James Roman Catholic Church in Chatham, NY. St. James, in turn, delivered these items to the local food pantry where the items were made available to families in need.
The Chatham Area Pantry reports that everything is still needed, including:
- Food with current “sell-by” dates
- Paper products
- WIC items (particularly disposable diapers)
- Pet food
Bring donations to each Canaan Congregational Church Sunday worship service. All items will be delivered to the Pantry every other week.
