The Pilgrim Lutheran social ministry committee aids people in need by administrating programs such as the toiletry cupboard, coins for a cause, book sales, breakfasts, strawberry festival, and pot luck suppers. We work in conjunction with other organizations and businesses in our local community in order to provide services to people in need. We have a joint effort with St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church in South Providence in distributing the toiletry items. All are welcome to join the social ministry committee to help with our programs. We welcome any financial contribution or gifts for the toiletry cupboard, and it would be greatly appreciated. There is also a basket to receive donations of toiletry products or items in the Narthex.
THE TOILETRY CUPBOARD
The Toiletry Cupboard is open on the third Thursday morning of every month at 10:00 to 11:00 am. It was created by Pilgrim Lutheran's social ministry committee to provide toiletry supplies to those in need of them. We provide and supply such items as toilet tissue, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap and other much needed toiletry supplies. Please, visit us and see what we have in our cupboard for you or call the church office for more information about it.
COINS FOR A CAUSE
Usually the first Sunday of every Month is "Coins for a Cause", which is when everyone is welcome to bring in their loose change for the coin collection. Each month a cause is chosen and contributions of coins, bills or checks are placed in a basket in the front of the church during the service.
