Clipping for a Cause...Danville, Virginia Style!

This was an email sent to me by Elizabeth, who has just started up a local "Clipping for a Cause" chapter in her hometown of Danville, Virginia. The following text was taken from the newsletter that was sent out to congregation members of Mt. Vernon church:

Clipping for a Cause!
Your help is needed to begin a new local mission
project! Clipping for a Cause is a very
inexpensive way to provide a huge amount of
food and other supplies to God’s Storehouse
and other local charities. How can you help?
You can bring your unused Sunday newspaper
coupon inserts to church (the inserts are the
manufacturer coupon inserts, not all of the
store sale flyers are necessary). Yes, that is
all you need to do!!! A collection box will be in
the children’s lobby area each week.
A group of volunteer shoppers will use the coupons to purchase food and personal care items
for donation to God’s Storehouse. Throughout the year, the group may shop for other local
charities that are in need. If you know of an organization that needs specific items, please
contact Elizabeth @ 799-2709.
You will be amazed at how much we can give! Please take a moment on Sunday mornings to
bring your unused inserts to church. This is an ongoing mission project, so bring them every
week. Thanks!
