For over a year our members have been donating books to be used in an outreach program for prisoners in jail in Jackson, Macon, and Swain counties. Unfortunately, this program has been discontinued, but another opportunity has arisen.
Elois Clegg, widow of Bob, a former pastor, has been actively ministering to the residents at the Baptist Retirement Home in Asheville where she is also residing. She has said she would welcome books that would be appealing to the residents and could use hardbacks or paperbacks fiction or nonfiction. There is also a need for coloring books and crayons, puzzle books or other activity books. Please leave you donations in a designated box in the Loving Kindness room, and materials will be delivered to Elois.
Many thanks for your participation.
