"The Light of Christ in Action"
FaithWorks supports the work of 18 Anglican affiliated ministries, including The Bridge Prison Ministry. During Lent we will be collecting for The Bridge Prison Ministry's Discharge Kits and we will also be collecting for The Bridge through donations to Faithworks. Donate online here. The discharge kits are backpacks or duffle bags, given to inmates upon their release from prison. They are filled with the basic essential toiletries and supplies that most cannot afford to purchase immediately upon their release. This simple gesture has done much to provide not only comfort but dignity to some who would not otherwise feel any sense of caring.
Items we are collecting:
- Duffle bags, Gym bags or Backpacks (New or Used)
- Toothpastes & Toothbrushes
- Soaps, Shampoos, Deodorants
- Disposable Razors & Blades
- Shaving Cream
- Towel & Face Cloths
- Alarm Clocks & Watches
- Gloves (Work or Winter)
- Bibles & Notes of Encouragement
- Work Boots & Running Shoes (New or Used – Steel Toe Work Boots Preferable)
There will be a box in the church to collect these items.
