Our missions emphasis has begun! Over the next two months, we will partner with Safe Harbor to both learn about the work Safe Harbor is doing and serve the needs of its community. Safe Harbor’s mission is “to provide a continuum of services for victims of domestic violence and their children; and to eliminate cultural acceptance of domestic violence through a coordinated community response, prevention and education.” It operates across Greenville, Pickens and Oconee counties and serves approximately 60 persons per week when each safe house is at capacity. Being a ministry that often sees mothers and young children arrive without necessities, there is a need for size 5/6 diapers and baby wipes. Beyond that, Safe Harbor has an Amazon Wish List that explicitly names their needs. We are challenging the Youth Family to meet the goal over the next week to acquire as many of these items as possible. You may purchase these items and either ship them to the church or bring them by the youth offices on the AYMC Terrace Level. We hope to have everything by Wednesday, October 30. To see Safe Harbor’s Wish List, please follow this link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/377UY1TQ3Q1X6/ref=cm_sw_su_w. There are so many needs in our community; together we can partner with our community to assist in meeting those needs.
