Thank you to all those who donated to the “One Great Hour of Sharing” collection. To date we have collected a total of $2,645. This year, as detailed in the OGHS letter, the person we recognized for her whole spectrum of gifts that she has contributed to our church and community was Melanie Holcomb.
Melanie has requested that the one-third share of the offering be given to Proud Haven shelter for LGBT Youth. Proud Haven helps LGBT youth who are experiencing homelessness and housing instability. They assist with finding resources, housing options, some basic daily supplies, emotional support, and developing the skills needed to live independently. They are currently located on Butler Avenue in Lawrenceville.
