Yard sale cancelled
funds still needed
for South Sudanese Students!
Sadly, it does not seem safe to hold our Sudan Mission Yard Sale scheduled for July 11, so we will not be collecting any more sale items in the Parish Hall. Many thanks to those who have already donated goods! Proceeds of selling them on Facebook, starting July 1, will go to the South Sudan Student Fund.
The fundraising will go on, however, so that John, Mary and William from Tonj, South Sudan can pursue secondary education in the 2021 academic year (January-December). The goal is $3,500. The Christian Outreach Committee has already given $1,500 to this effort. If you would like to make a cash donation to help complete the goal, you can send a check to Grace Episcopal Church with "South Sudan Students" in the memo line, or make an online donation by selecting "Community Outreach" from the drop down menu on the church website at www.graceepiscopallexington.org/give
