Mission Project – Gift of the Heart Kits

Consider a gift this season for the “least of these:” victims of disaster

John the Baptist would have loved this program. PDA (Presbyterian Disaster Assistance) is the emergency and refugee program of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. Their specialty is providing assistance immediately after a disaster, while other organizations may scramble to raise money and get organized. A PDA program, Gift of the Heart Kits, collects various emergency kits that people will need when disasters like hurricanes strike (see https://www.pcusa.org/resource/pda-gift-heart-kits-content-list). Consider donating to this project yourself, or giving it in someone else’s name as an alternate gift – gift cards are available in Fellowship Hall to announce your gift. The gift kit choices are the Hygiene Kit ($10), School Kit ($15), Baby Kit ($39) and Cleanup Bucket ($56). You may specify the kit(s) you want purchased, or donate any amount of money and various kits will be made. Look for a display of sample kits, gift cards, and sign-up sheets in Fellowship Hall during Advent, or make checks out to DNPC with a memo of “disaster kits.”

On Martin Luther King Day (Jan. 18) we will assemble the kits at the Plainsboro Presbyterian Church, after sharing a pot luck dinner with them at 6 PM. Save the date!
