Spring is here and I hope you’ve all been safe during this pandemic year.
Our 13th annual Fill-A-Truck Sunday will be on Sunday, May 16th Knox will host the Wayside Cross Ministries truck from 8:30 - Noon. Our Knox family has been faithful servants to the residents of Wayside Cross and filled the truck every year for the past 12 years. In fact, last year may have been the best event ever as we filled 2+ trucks. Note that this event has always been “drive through” so we will be fully in compliance with safe distancing and masking protocols. Donations will also be accepted at Knox during the week of May10. Please check in at the Church office so our janitorial staff can stage these donations in Fellowship Hall.
Clean your closets, dresser drawers, and storage areas. Give the men and women of Wayside Cross your outgrown or gently used clothes along with baby accessories, small furniture items and small appliances that are clean and in working order. However, books should not be donated. Books will be tossed by WCM and is a cost for their removal. Even ripped or torn clothing is turned into $$$ by recycling to organizations that provide clothing to third world countries or by creating cleaning rags. Begin organizing your donations now to help bring on feelings of spring and make your time at home worthwhile.
Your donation will help serve hundreds of people with meals, clothing, and lodging. Your clothing will either be distributed through the Community Outreach Program or turned into $$$ for WCM in the Hope Chest Resale Store. The men and women of Wayside Cross thank you.
