Sunflowers for Ukraine
Sunday, May 15, 2022
11:00am - 1:00pm

Why sunflowers? In better days, Ukraine raised millions of sunflowers and exported 48% of the worlds sunflower oil. The sunflower is an enduring symbol of the country.

On Sunday, May 15, we will serve a light lunch in the Sunday School area after worship. There will be stations set up in Quist Hall for all ages to make paper sunflowers. We will have patterns and supplies to make the flowers, and plenty of crafty helpers to answer questions.

Our hope is to come together in recognition of Ukraine's humanitarian crisis, encourage prayers, and collect donations for Lutheran World Relief. They have feet on the ground with medical assistance, food, shelter, and refugee protection programs.

Please join us, and tell your friends. This event is open to the public. A suggested donation of $10 per adult includes crafting supplies and lunch.
The cupboards at Iglesia Santa Cruz are critically low on non-perishable items! They are in dire need of:

We'll gladly do the shopping if you perfer to make a cash donation on Sunday.

Suggested donation schedule:

1st Sundays - Rice & Beans
2nd Sundays - Masa & Oil
3rd Sundays - Sugar & Salt
4th Sundays - Laundry/Dish Soap & Pesonal hygeine items (men & women)
5th Sundays - Socks and Undies (All ages/genders)

Gift cards and Thrivent Grants are also welcome. 

Matching Gifts Challenge Benefitting the SLO County Food Bank

The new donation site is up and running. Please click the link below for more information.

Link to Mt. Carmel matching funds page

If you prefer to donate to the matching funds challenge by check, make your check out to the SLO County Food Bank. Write Mt. Carmel Matching Funds Drive on the memo line so that your donation will be properly credited.  Mail to:

Food Bank Coalition of SLO County
1180 Kendall Road

Please do not route your food bank donations through Mount Carmel.  Doing so will delay your donation and make tracking the matching funds challenge donations difficult for the food bank.

Thank you to Mount Carmel for your always generous spirit!
