Actions for November
The CFM November Group Actions center around helping the homeless and underserved in our community. There are three Actions to choose from.

  • The first one involves the cash donations for the Journeys’ Building for Hope Capital Campaign.
  • Secondly, there is an Amazon Wishlist put together by Journeys.
  • The final Action is a fun family activity called “A Gratitude Scavenger Hunt”.

As always, you can decide which Action(s) are best suited for your family.
The attachment contains 3 flyers that explain the Actions in great detail.

Our own Don Piergalski, a long time CFM family member, has been donating his time and energy to the St. Mark’s Food Pantry for years. In order to stream line his volunteers, he has set up a Signup Genius (organized by Erin Berwick. Thanks Erin!!!) Please follow the link below and sign up to help either collect food on a Sunday morning or deliver food on a Saturday morning. The Signup Genius explains it all! Thanks, in advance!!!  Click here:
