HANDS ON KIRKWOOD
Saturday October 7, 2017
This year GPC members and friends are invited to join congregations in the larger community and participate in Hands on Kirkwood. Hands of Kirkwood is a day when all residents are
encouraged and empowered to serve their neighbors. Every year new organizations, clubs, individualsand churches join in the network. Bringing together people of various races,
beliefs, cultures, and perspectives to serve our community cultivates a spirit of cooperation and unity. Your hands make a difference!
There are several ways GPC will participate in this Day of Service.
Winter Clothing Drive—Now is the time to clean out your closets and donate your gently
worn clothes: coats, slacks and trousers, blouses and shirts, adult and children’s clothing
are all desired. Please drop off your donation here at GPC. We will collect clothing through September 24th.
Sign Up to Serve—Volunteers are needed for all sorts of projects and abilities and ages throughout the community. Here are just a few volunteer site examples: Winterize Car Check Station, Winter Clothing, Toy and Book Store, Home Projects. There are many more to choose from as well. Our goal is to have 30 individuals participate on October 7th!
You may sign up in a couple of ways:

OR You may sign up here at GPC on September 10th (at the picnic) using a paper registration form.
Baby Blanket Station—This is GPC’s project. We are hosting the Baby Blanket station.
