The First Presbyterian Church family has completed and delivered another “batch” of the Church World Service Mission School Bag and Hygiene Kits. As of today, 35 completed school kits, 2 clean-up buckets and 99 complete hygiene kits have been delivered to the drop off point for collection!!
A huge "Thank You" to everyone who supplied all the items and cash donations for the school bags, clean-up buckets and hygiene kits, supplied school bags and made school bags and those who helped assemble and box kits for delivery to the drop off point. We are very grateful to the Presbyterian Women of the Presbytery of Susquehanna Valley for providing the $274.00 processing/shipping costs for these kits.
The Church World Service Kits (Hygiene Kits, School Kits, Baby Care Kits, and Emergency Cleanup Buckets) are an ongoing mission project at First Presbyterian Church of Delhi. If you would like to help out, contact Nancy A. in the church office.

Baby Hats, Blankets, Pillowcases & Prayer Shawls

Note new 2018 guidelines for hospital donations may be picked up in the church office.

Hospitals are deeply appreciative of your talents and generosity. Their main goal is to see that they can use all of what is given while utilizing their storage areas to the fullest potential.

We have recently sent off baby hats, blankets and prayer shawls to area hospitals in need for use in the neonatal and pediatric intensive care units.

Through your efforts we were able to send many pillowcases, hats, blankets and prayer shawls. Thanks to all.

REMINDER: We are still accepting hats, blankets, prayer shawls and pillowcases to be donated to area hospitals for children in ICU and neonatal intensive care unit. Keep those knitting needles and crochet hooks busy! If you need a pattern, please stop by the church office. Completed hats, blankets and pillowcases can be left in the Hospitality room and they will be picked up and taken to Albany or another hospital in need. Thank you for your ongoing support of this mission.
