Mission Outreach news
While Haiti has been a long-term commitment of St. Margaret’s, the Mission Outreach Committee continues to identify and try to remedy urgent needs in our local community. The support we give to the Food Cupboard and the twice-weekly Toddlers’ Playdate are well-known examples. The committee’s newest endeavor is to support local volunteers for the formation of aSoap Closet. For many people, it is difficult to purchase toiletries and detergents, items that are seldom covered by food stamps. Sometime next fall, the Soap Closet will begin to provide people with hygiene products such as toilet paper, soaps, detergents, toothpaste and other dental needs, and much more. Distribution of these items will occur on a monthly basis at food cupboards in Searsport, Belfast, and Northport. Stay tuned for more information on how you can help.
