October Outreach Project Update:
Approximately $500 worth of toys, food, treats, pillows, towels, paper towels, kitty litter, dish and laundry detergent and bleach was donated (See Picture below). Some of which was donated by Gravel Springs. The items were divided into thirds and have been donated to the Shenandoah and Frederick County Animal Shelters, as well as the Winchester, Frederick and Clarke SPCA. Sue Eyre dropped off items to the Frederick County Animal Shelter and the SPCA on November 6, 2017. The agencies were very grateful!! Once again, great job. Thanks to the congregations at St. John’s and Gravel Springs who made this possible.
