HCC Update (Nov 6, 2020)


Angel Tree 2020
You can be a blessing! Once again, we are conducting our Angel Tree project. There are now TWO WAYS to select available tags.

  1. IN-PERSON: the traditional tree will be placed in HCC's lobby (beginning Nov 8)
  2. *New* ONLINE: an online sign-up is now available at https://tinyurl.com/20-angel-tree-20

  Gifts may be brought to church Sunday mornings and dropped off at the Angel Tree table. If you are not attending services in person, the gifts can be brought to the church during office hours, Monday-Friday. The deadline for returning gifts is Sunday, November 29. Please include tag information with each gift so we can match it to the correct child!
  The Angel Tree ministry has provided gifts for selected families within our community for many years. By providing two methods to select tags, we are hopeful the response will be as generous as it has been in the past.

American Red Cross
  CRITICAL LOCAL VOLUNTEER NEED!! Our local Red Cross is currently experiencing an urgent need for FIVE NEW volunteers in the Licking County area to help staff our community blood drives in the area (specifically to help with the position of blood drive ambassadors).
  FYI: Blood Ambassador volunteers welcome visitors at local blood drives, assist with donor registration questions and take their temperature (with a handheld temperature checker) before they enter. These volunteers typically volunteer 2-3 days a month and cover scheduled 3 to 6-hour shifts. Protective equipment is provided and social distancing protocols are enforced. Training is provided and nursing staff is always available to assist with any questions.
  For anyone that would like to know more about how they can register to help, click the following link: www.redcross.org/volunteertoday. You can also email michael.vance@redcross.org for more information.
