“The annual Christmas Project for the Broome County Council of Churches Jail Ministry desperately needs your help this week. We have gift bags with books and stuffed animals for children of inmates ready for local delivery, with most of them for Binghamton. If you would like to participate in this heartwarming ministry, you can pick them up at the Council of Churches at 3 Otseningo St. Binghamton, NY 13903 (607)-724-9130 on M-F 8:30-4:40. The bags are sorted by zip codes and instructions are attached to the bags, All we ask is that you drop them off at the front doors, no need to knock or visit. Just remove and discard the instruction sheets when you leave the bag”.
Our other project for the Broome County Jail inmates:
“Every Christmas the Broome County Council of Churches Jail Ministry Program gives small gift bags to the inmates containing simple items we take for granted on the outside. We will be assembling these hand decorated bags at our Annual Christmas Wrapping party at 6:00 PM this Thursday 12/21 at the Sheriff’s Office. We have a very nice time with fellowship and pizza. If you would like to attend please call Chaplain Cris Mogenson at 607-778-6518. We are also in need of playing cards, small puzzle books, and tissue packets”.
