Shoe & Clothing Donations for Haiti & Peru!

It's never too late for a little "spring cleaning"!

ECV, in conjunction with a collaboration of churches around the city - the "Greater New Haven Help Alliance" - is asking for donations of unwanted clothes and other items as part of its Spring Cleaning Campaign to help humanitarian efforts for Haiti and Peru.

We are collecting items such as: shoes, blankets, backpacks and children's winter clothing that are in good condition.

The Collection Deadline is: Saturday, July 10th

Collection Locations:
- Next Week at ECV Sunday Gathering (7/4): There will be a large box near main entrance to the Sanctuary.
- Edge of the Woods Grocery Store (379 Whalley Avenue): We will have a large box to collect items here as well (the donation box will be there by this Wednesday, 6/30).
- Main Collection Site: Church on the Rock (95 Hamilton Street) - If you would like to drop off the items yourself.
