During July, our WMU missions group is collecting face masks to send to Baptist Friendship House in New Orleans. A ministry of the Southern Baptist Convention, Friendship House provides temporary housing for women and children, as well as job training for them. They also serve the many homeless in the city.
Kay Bennett, director, says they need cloth masks as well as disposable masks. Cloth masks are needed for men, women, and children. If you're planning to make masks, click here for a good source for patterns.
There will be boxes to receive mask donations near the church office, as well as in the foyer entrance to the sanctuary.
