The children of longtime Sun Lakes resident Shirley Chase kick off the Sun Lakes UCC Lent Project with donations for the needy in her memory. During Lent, the Sun Lakes United Church of Christ is collecting items that cannot be purchased with subsidies from government assistance. These donations will be delivered to the following Phoenix agencies: UMOM (assisting homeless families), Justa Center (serving homeless seniors) and Sojourner Center (caring for abused women).
Melissa Steimer, chief development officer at UMOM, will be speaking to the congregation at our services on Sunday, March 4, at 11:15 a.m. Join us to hear about how you can help UMOM in their efforts to serve the homeless families of Phoenix. For further information about the church’s Lent Project, contact Sue Bennett at 480-895-8475.
