L.A. HOMELESS TENT DRIVE

During February, OSLC will collect small, one or two person tents. Do you have one you are no longer using? Please bring it to the church office, or drop it off in the Narthex. If you prefer we will gladly come get it! Call the church office, (949) 492-6164, or Wendell Person, (623) 810-1506. 

** New tents will also be gladly accepted**

New tents can be purchased for $25—$30 at Walmart or www.walmart.com. They are approximately 5’x7’  dimension. Any donations received will be used to purchase these tents. 

This service is provided by our friend, Ken Mead. He lives in an area of Los Angeles where the homeless are allowed to pitch a tent at night for shelter. He gives a tent to anyone who wants one.

 

ADULE STUDY - HUNGER

The Adult Sunday School between services on Sunday, February 22, will be hosted by Our Savior’s Hunger Advocacy Working Group. The focus of the conversation will be the latest information from Bread for the World regarding hunger and poverty legislation in 2015. Come join the discussion in the Founders Room. No preparation required and no homework! Just bring your curiosity and thoughts.

 

SCHOOL SUPPLIES DRIVE

San Onofre School at Camp Pendleton needs basic school supplies like copy paper, notebook paper, white board markers, colored pencils, Kleenex and wipes. Bring donations to the Narthex during February. Thanks!
