One World, One Love
The 2019 – 2020 Poor Box Ministry Project.
As we did the past two years, the Poor Box Ministry Project for this year has been chosen to compliment the Stewardship Committee’s theme of the “Pineapple.”
During the Colonial Days of Newport, RI and even during our time the Pineapple is seen as a symbol of hospitality and welcome.
For this reason we have chosen One World, One Love to be our new Poor Box Ministry Project.
One World, One Love (1W1L) is a group of volunteers who act as a rapid response team for refugees resettling in New Jersey. From immediate assistance such as setting up apartments to collecting donations, to long term resettlement efforts, such as job placement and facilitating social services, programs and events, volunteers are on the ground doing everything they can to help our new neighbors feel welcomed, safe, respected and supported.
With each donation dropped into the Holy Apostles Poor Box we will be helping our new neighbors feel welcomed, safe, respected and supported. TO GIVE to HOLY APOSTLES POOR BOX MINISTRY please click on the red DONATE button above.
