Ukraine Stroller and Medical Supply Drive

UPDATE FROM MISSION COMMITTEE

The Mission Committee thanks the congregation and Open Door parents for their generous donations for Ukraine.  We raised:

  • $1,387.50 for the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance Program and earmarked the funds to go directly to their work in Ukraine.
  • $1,480.63 for the Ukrainian American Cultural Center of New Jersey and St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Church. They are working together to regularly send items such as medical supplies and strollers to Ukraine.  We also used $1000 dollars from our Mission funds to purchase the most urgently needed medical supplies. The 6 used strollers and 5 boxes of medical supplies that were collected were dropped off at the Cultural Center and will be included in the next shipment to Ukraine.

Many thanks to all who participated in both of these drives.  We continue to pray for the people of Ukraine and an end to this devastating war.

Peace for Ukraine

PRESBYTERIAN DISASTER ASSISTANCE: UKRAINE

The people of Ukraine are facing an unfathomable humanitarian crisis. As they try to make their way to safe borders, they are without power, water, fuel, food, and other basic supplies. In this time of desperate need, we ask that you help support the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) in their response to the situation in Ukraine and their efforts to work with sibling churches and other faith communities to provide aid.

CLICK HERE to help support PDA: Ukraine by using our online Giving page or by sending a check to the church office.

WPC partners with the Christian Appalachian Project

In July a team of 12 youth and adults road-tripped to Eastern Kentucky to partner with the Christian Appalachian Project (CAP). For the fourth year in a row, we spent the first week of summer bringing hope and help to those in desperate need. This year we re-shingled roofs and built porches to make their homes safer and dryer. It was a wonderful week hard work and heavy lifting, team bonding and faith abounding. We can’t wait to go back again next summer!
