Missions Project Spring 2021

In collaboration with the Dedham Junior Women’s Club, the Allin Church Missions Committee is collecting items which will be distributed to homeless people in the Boston area.  The items we are collecting are:

Men & women sweatpants or leggings

Long sleeve shirts for men or hoodies

Underwear for both

Combs and or hairbrushes

Deodorant for both

Razors

Snacks

Reusable Water bottles

Water and or Power drinks

Backpacks

A collection basket will be set up just inside the church door on the Bullard Street side.

The collected items are packed into backpacks and given to homeless people.  The group that started this collection project consists of mothers who have lost a child to addiction.  They include a note in the backpacks stating that the backpack is given in memory of a loved one.  This group encourages our congregation to dedicate backpacks in memory of our loved ones – just include a note in the collection basket that can be added to a backpack.

The collection basket will be available Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon.

Thank you for supporting our efforts with this mission.

***UPDATE 4/27/21****

We are collecting new clothes, as opposed to “gently used” clothes.  We would like to have donations brought to our drop off sites by Saturday, May 15.  Pastor Cheryl is setting up an alternative drop off site at the Manse.  Judy Massey also volunteered to provide a drop off site at her home – her address is 131 Bridge Street.

Remember if you are using the drop off site at the Church, inside the Bullard Street door, this site is available Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon.

The items we are collecting are:

Men & women sweatpants or leggings

Long sleeve shirts for men or hoodies

Underwear for both

Combs and or hairbrushes

Deodorant for both
