Incorporating the Basic Essentials cart into our daily/weekly living has become a tradition. It sits in the southwest corner of Wilson Hall, always ready to be overfilled with food and necessities that we pass on to our neighbors. Our intention is to keep mission work in our everyday lives as we make the purchases that sustain our homes and lives. Simply purchasing two of any item on your list, whether dried or canned goods, spices or cooking oils, toiletries, paper goods, and bringing them to the Cart makes a difference. Children can help decide on or purchase items as well as placing them in the cart, a great Sunday morning tradition! This is truly a mission for all ages. We regularly distribute items to GraceWorks, Bridges and My Friends House.
The Basic Essentials Cart is also the collection spot for some year round projects. Novels for Project JOY, Coats for Room In The Inn and Christmas Presents for GraceWorks Manger.. Details and Cart donation suggestions are listed below.
