World Medical Relief Efforts in Haiti

We have all seen and heard the reports of the extreme devastation caused in Haiti this summer from back to back disasters the country has experienced. World Medical Relief, in cooperation with Alafia Foundation of Hope International, Divine Child High School, and Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity of Wayne State University, is collecting a variety of supplies for the Caribbean nation, which was rocked by a 7.2 magnitude earthquake and then pummeled two days later by Tropical Storm Grace. As a result of this two-fold tragedy, more than 2,000 Haitians have died, while thousands are homeless.


World Medical Relief is located in Southfield, Michigan and was started in 1953 by a Detroit housewife – Irene M. Auberlin.

There are copies of the fascinating history of this organization available on the table in Weir Foyer.

Please take a copy home with you!


Over the next several weeks, we will be collecting the following medical supplies which will be delivered to World Medical Relief and then shipped to Haiti. You may place your donations in the box located in Weir Foyer.


We will be collecting items through Sunday, October 10.

Blessing of the Animals 2021

Cherry Hill’s “Blessing of the Animals” service has become an annual fall tradition.

 

This special service commemorates the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi.

He was a great lover and protector of all of God’s creatures, great & small.

 

All two and four footed, furry and feathery, crated or leashed friends are welcome!

If you are unable to bring your pet, please bring a photograph.

 

A free-will offering will be received for the Dearborn Animal Shelter.

The shelter handles almost 3,000 animals a year!

This free will offering will be an additional way for us to share our care and concern for our special friends.

What can I do?


Helping Hand Food Pantry


We are helping people in our community

to fight hunger.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Helping Hand’s Mission Statement

 

Helping Hand is a program supported by the congregation of this church.  We supply food to people of our community on an emergency basis.  Other area churches and local organizations participate in this program by providing additional food and monetary donations that assist us in keeping the church pantry supplied.  These are our sole sources of assistance to aid those who come to us in need.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


The Helping Hand Food Pantry is open on the first and third Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.* If it is your first time, please come before 12:00 noon. To qualify to receive food from the pantry, a picture I.D. is required.  Only one person per household (per address) is eligible to apply for assistance for the family.  Eligible participants can receive food from the pantry once every other month**.

 

*may be closed due to bad weather, or a church event; it’s best to call ahead

**subject to change depending on food supply

     

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Since 1989, the food pantry has served an increasing number of families every year and remains committed to addressing food insecurity in southeast Michigan where, as many as 1 in 7, households struggle to put food on the table.


During the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have maintained our food distribution.

We developed a contact-less delivery system for the protection of our clients and our workers.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


How can I donate food?

 

Generally, you can drop off non-perishable food items to the church Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., but please call ahead.


 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Can I make a monetary donation?


Absolutely!


You may donate by using our secure online link:

or by making a check payable to:


Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church

with “Helping Hand” on the memo line.


And Thank You!
