Christ Church is committed to providing 25 Ditty Bags to the Seamen’s Institute. These bags will go to Seafarers in the upcoming holidays who are living on cargo ships, often isolated and unable to return home to their families for months. Seafarers work hard to bring us goods and produce from all over to world to the Delaware River Ports.
We will be collecting throughout November and then assembling items into bags. Each week a new set of items will be collected in the front pews of the nave, please feel free to drop them off throughout the week during office hours or on Sundays.
- Nov. 5: Work socks, work gloves, chapstick.
- Nov. 12 : Toothbrush, deodorant, shampoo, comb.
- Nov. 19: Nail clippers, razors, shaving cream, hand lotion.
- Nov. 26: Notepads, mini-sewing kit, playing cards.
Full sizes item for toiletries please, NOT travel or miniature size
Ditty Bag assembly will take place on Sunday, November 26th after the 10:15am service. This is the Sunday after Thanksgiving and a wonderful way to share in the abundance and gratitude of the holiday, by paying it forward. Bring whatever family you have visiting to join!
