Church donates packages to seafarers

Jan 04, 2017

SeafarerSatchelsatSTJohnsSeafarers, people who work on rigs at sea, had a brighter Christmas thanks to this group of people from St. John’s Lutheran Church in Poughkeepsie who put together 44 satchels of donated items. The satchel gifts were purchased by church members and through Action Team money from Thrivent Financial.

 

"The satchels were given to let the seafarers know they are not forgotten and are cared for; making Christmas special despite the miles between them and their loved ones back home," said Jeanne Jones, director of lay ministries at the church.
