As last year’s chairs of the A Pair & A Spare committee are not able to chair the committee this year it was looking bleak for any collection to be done this year. Just as the Brown County Homeless & Housing Coalition was about to resign itself to the need to cancel the drive for the upcoming year, we were blessed with an opportunity to receive new socks and underwear for those we serve, that requires very little work on the part of our members!!!
Each year, in early January, the Forest Lakes District (FLD) Youth Conference is held in Green Bay. This year’s event is taking place January 8th – 10th. The Conference is “a 3-day retreat full of worship, teaching, service projects, and seminars that attracts more than 3,200 students from around Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota and beyond.” As part of the Conference activities, students participate in a service project. This year, the group chose to collect new socks and underwear in their home church communities that they’ll be bringing to distribute to agencies serving those in need in our community! The attendees will bring the items they collected to the Conference, and spend Saturday counting, sorting and preparing for agencies to pick-up!
