This is the time to come…

Dear Women of Faith supporters,

Please won’t you come to workday on Thursday, April 14th? You’re needed and we think you might need us too.

Come anytime between 11am – 8pm for any length of time.

The Bone Marrow Registry Drive will take place from noon to 6pm.



Please help 3 year old Ronan Godfrey who desperately needs a bone marrow transplant. You can help in one or more of the following ways:

1. You can join the bone marrow registry if you are between 18 and 60 years old, in good health, and are willing to donate to any person in need. The process to join the registry includes filling out a health questionnaire and providing a cheek swab. It takes about 10 minutes. ( has excellent videos that explain the entire process of donating marrow. There is a new procedure for donating bone marrow that is similar to donating plasma and does not require surgery. It is used in more than half of marrow transplants.)

2. If you are not able to donate, will you take time to call someone you know who may be able to?

3. If you would like to join the registry, but can’t make it on Thursday, you can request a kit at the website and register by mail.

4. Please remember Ronan and his family (who just welcomed a new baby brother 2 ½ weeks ago) in your prayers.

Help Us Provide An Easter Surprise!


NOTICE: We have a last minute request for something to help our boys at the Robertson Memorial Boys Home. The mid-singles are planning to have a very special Easter event with the boys. They will be taking in an Easter dinner complete with all the trimmings, then have a special program with music and an Easter message. They want to end by giving each young man an Easter basket filled with goodies. So, if you have any of the following you would like to donate, could you bring them with you on Thursday?

  • Easter Baskets
  • Easter Candy, plastic eggs, etc.        
  • Grass or netting for baskets
  • Any Easter décor

Other projects for Thursday:

1. wheelchair/walker caddies

2. crocheted hats

3. quilts

4. origami cranes (we turned in 1200 on Tues night!)

5. greeting cards

6. hygiene kits

Current Requests:

  • Easter candy, etc. (see above)
  • Yarn, particularly soft baby yarn
  • Used greeting cards (we’re cutting them up to make new cards)
  • Card stock and construction paper in a variety of colors
  • Scrapbooking paper – even scraps from other projects
  • Hygiene items: full size or samples, especially shaving cream, wash cloths, and combs
  • Quilt batting or donations of $$ to purchase it. (We can get it by the bolt for ½ price.)
  • You
