News, Connections and Photos from the life of the faith community at CAPC Oakland
Join us this Sunday from 12:00pm – 2:00pm for a Family Friendly Advent Craft Fair. Crafts are appropriate for people aged 1-99 years. Come for fun, to meet new folks, do some holiday crafting and even a chance to create alternative Christmas presents that you can give to one another.
We’re collecting new socks to give to the homeless in downtown Oakland, in partnership with Food of God, a ministry associated with Plymouth United Church of Christ here in Oakland. Bring some new adult sized socks to contribute to the efforts.
Below is what they do as a non-profit:
We distribute these holiday gift bags on Thursday, December 19, at 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Items of need are personal hygiene (disposable razors, toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, brushes, shampoo, conditioner, kleenex, hand sanitizers, etc.) As well we like about a dozen gently used children’s books and games, small toys, stuffed animals, and lots of warm clothing items: esp. socks of all sizes (all ages), male and female,gloves, all sizes, male, female, scarves, and hats. In addition we add to these gift bags small pads of paper, pencils, pens, and hand-warmers. The last is a must!
