Operation Christmas Child
 
    
Circle of Friends worked hard to raise the money and organize the packing party in order to ship out 85 boxes filled with gifts, hygiene items and school supplies. These boxes go to children all over the world who live in extreme poverty or in war-torn countries. We were thrilled to have St Paul Lutheran's help in making this happen!

Common Good Gardens 
"It was nice meeting you and your young crew this afternoon. I think it was a fun and productive hour of gardening. All eight kids worked hard on weeding two beds, picking tomatoes (the ones laying on the ground) and some beans. No doubt picking beans was their favorite chore.
Thank you for your help."  Jola
