The Bad Weather Shelter needs donations of socks, underwear, and rain ponchos for their clients. There’s a separate basket in the parish hall for church members’ donations. The church expresses its gratitude to those who made regular donations to the food pantry.
For those who have a a spare hour during the school day just one day a week, would you consider helping a child? Reading Partners works with children in the Pasadena public schools who are struggling with reading. The program provides all teaching materials and trains tutors; all you have to do is show up. Being a reading partner is an ongoing opportunity Â throughout the school year. If you’re interested, please call or email Carol Rasmussen at (626) 355-5135 or email@example.com or visit readingpartners.org.
After Christmas, the church will post a signup sheet for Ascensionâ€™s evenings to serve dinner at the Bad Weather Shelter on January 31 and February 26.
