In January, 2023 the Congregational Care and Outreach Committee went on a shopping spree. They spent $700 on food and supplies for the Blessing Box.
"Spree" may not be the right word. It was a carefully organized shopping expedition. Members of the committee went to Aldi's and bought in bulk. They had dealt with Aldi's before, and were a non-profit on record.
That meant OPC didn't have to pay sales tax on anything purchased. $700 bought $700 worth of food and toiletries.
The money was part of the committee's budget. A budget funded by all who belong to Orange Presbyterian Church.
So thank you. Your generosity ensured we can keep this vital ministry going.
