The Missions committee works to positively impact communities in need, both locally and globally. We collect food for the Glastonbury Food Pantry and the Naubuc School Backpack program, donate produce grown in our community garden to a local soup kitchen, and raise funds for ELCA World Hunger.
Throughout the year, Missions organizes the making of “Care Kits” for people without housing. The kits include water bottles, socks, hand wipes and oral hygiene products along with gift cards to grocery stores or restaurants. All are encouraged to distribute the bags where needed.
A variety of other efforts are organized each year to respond to community needs and major disasters.
