On Friday, December 6, at 10:30 a.m., the Diocese of Pittsburgh's Episcopal Church Women (ECW) will be packing Christmas boxes for the Seaman's Church Institute at St. Paul's in Mt. Lebanon.

Needed donations are hand lotion, chewing gum, wrapped candy, puzzle books, microwave popcorn, lip balm and paperback books. Items can be brought to the packing party or left in the church offices at: St. Paul's, Mt. Lebanon, Church of the Nativity, Crafton, St. Thomas Memorial Church, Oakmont or the diocesan offices in Monroeville.

In addition to packing boxes for the mariners, the ECW will also be collecting books, toiletries, children's books and children's craft supplies for the women's prison ministry led by Dana Phillips. We ask that the books for the women please exclude any violent or sexually explicit material.

It will be community work day with lunch provided. Please RSVP by December 3 to Debbie Wiles at 412-512-5185 or debwiles@verizon.net.
