BLOOMSBURG FAIR MINISTRY, ITEMS NEEDED FOR FAIR WORKERS
Each year, churches in the area collect items for the Bloomsburg Fair workers. The fair workers live in rough quarters with little space for storage. They work outside in all sorts of weather; access to expensive dry cleaning facilities is not possible. Clothes will be needed by September 16.
If you have any questions or need clothing picked up, please contact Nancy Hock at 570-854-9592. See our Parish Highlights or our weekly bulletin for addition information about these much needed items.
