During the month of May, we will be having a collection of personal care items and other gifts for the women and children being supported by the Independence House in Hyannis.  Independence House is Cape Cod’s leading domestic and sexual violence emergency housing resource, counseling, and advocacy center to address and prevent domestic and sexual violence.  Look for the “Lobster Trap” with many “life savers” on it, each with an item to purchase for a special gift bag.  Women and children will receive these gift bags from our congregation.  They will be delivered to Independence House at the end of May.  In addition, throughout the month, people may donate to a “May Day Fund,” perhaps in memory or in honor of a mother, or other special person in our lives.  This emergency fund will be used to assist people in “peril” and other crisis situations in our local community.  More information will be forth coming.  Stay tuned!

We will be collecting health care items for the month of May to make Health Kits for those in need.  Let’s make it a meaningful Mother’s Day and Memorial Day by donating in memory or in honor of a loved one!
