Each colorful bag is assembled with a church coffee mug, magnet, notepad, pencil, and other ‘goodies’, along with a letter of welcome.

|Martha’s Hands||Volunteers prepare meals for church (and sometimes community) members who are ill, following surgery, new baby, or death in the family.

An email to the volunteers is sent with a link to the website, where they can sign up for a date to take a meal. The volunteer contacts the recipient directly the morning of their date to coordinate delivery.|
