Thank you to all who participated in our event. We feel so fortunate to have had so many merchants contribute items for the Silent Auction. Our members supplied a vast array of spiced and sweet treats along with assorted cards and gift items that brought joy to many Valentine celebrations. The room was filled with a delightful energy. Many thanks to our longtime and newfound friends for joining us at this new endeavor. Check out the photos in the Gallery!

Blue Bag Sunday
Blue Bag Sundays have resumed.
The third Sunday of the month is the official collection day at All Saints' Church for donations to the Shoreline Soup Kitchen. Blue bags are located in the Parish Room, where non-perishable food items are collected. Even if you do not remember to get a bag, food and monetary donations are gladly accepted in any bag, on any day the church is open.
Care Packages for the New Horizons Women's Shelter
All Saints' Episcopal Church collects items for the New Horizons Women's Shelters of Clinton and Middletown. The organization is looking for donations of umbrellas, body washes, slippers, kitchen trash bags, aluminum foils, saran wraps, zip lock bags (all sizes), canned soups (that kids like), canned tunas, juice boxes, cereals, boxed mac & cheeses, snacks for kids lunches and toiletries. These items can be placed in the box labelled New Horizons in the Parish Room.
There is a box on top of the file cabinet in the Parish Room for empty ink cartridges. The donated cartridges are taken to Staples and the Church receives $2.00 for each cartridge and this money is used to purchase supplies.
