Growing in Faith Together: DioCon Collection Project

Thanks to convention delegates, visitors and volunteers, we gathered life-sustaining items for people in need in our diocese. Attendees were asked to bring necessities for one of our diocesan ministries. In the end, your generosity provided:

The convention planning team said this outpouring of generosity “far exceeded” their expectations. The socks and underwear went home with Episcopal Community Services which operates Friend-to-Friend, a support center for homeless people. The peanut butter provides much needed protein source for low-income seniors served by St. Paul’s Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). The diapers, wipes and cream will help RefugeeNet‘s young families as they adjust to life in the States on tight budgets.

Thank you to all who participated and brought these much-needed items to our 45th Annual Diocesan Convention. Enjoy the photos below and thank you for your generosity!
