New serve COLUMBUS Project!
Each night, while we are sound asleep, our local Emergency Medical Service (EMS) crews are answering the calls of people in need. Whether helping an elderly person who has fallen, responding to a drug overdose, or transporting a toddler to the hospital, the EMS night crews see people at their
greatest times of crisis. Many times, their meals and conversations get interrupted. Often, they return home in the early morning, exhausted and emotionally drained.
Our next serve COLUMBUS opportunity is focused on blessing EMS personnel in our community. We are going to do this by providing gift baskets for six evening teams which will be delivered on Friday night, June 7th.
If you would like to contribute to this local outreach, there are several options for giving:
· Donate small snack items such as chips, muffins, baked goods, candy bars, etc. Please make certain that you purchase snack size, individually wrapped items.
· Donate cash of $20 gift cards to local fast food restaurants.
· Write a note of encouragement to an EMS worker and their shift partner. Please make the note generic as our church is not being supplied with the names of all the workers.
We will be collecting items throughout the month of May. Place items or notes in the box labeled “EMS Outreach” in the lobby. Please put your cash or gift cards in the offering bags as they are passed and make certain your gift is labeled for the EMS Outreach. Thank you for your generosity!
