LABOR DAY DONATION DRIVE FOR JUSTA CENTER – A HUGE SUCCESS!

Beatitudes Church has a long tradition of hosting an annual luncheon for seniors experiencing homelessness on Labor Day at the Justa Center. The pandemic made that impossible this year. However, the Beatitudes community did not give up, and raised $1,450 in monetary donations to give to the Justa Center! Thank you for your continued support of this important and vital mission! Check back soon for new ways you can help Justa Center continue to serve their seniors!

AZ HUMANE SOCIETY SHOEBOX DRIVE

(TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED) WANTED: EMPTY SHOE BOXES FOR THE HUMANE SOCIETY! Don’t forget our furry friends at the AZ HUMANE SOCIETY! They want shoe boxes any size for the cats and kittens. It provides them a secure place and the box goes to their new home. Boxes are collected at the end of each month. Donates can be left in the Faith in Action basket in the foyer or you can also drop them at the front office. Make a cuddly kitten happy and secure!
