Church gives back to the community
First Congregational United Church of Christ Pastor Mike Munz, Anna Alvarez and Sally O’Connor pose for a photo with three children showing coats purchased with donations from church members. Money for this community service projects was used to buy coats, shoes and other items for children.

Each Christmas, First Congregational United Church of Christ members donate money for a project in the community. This year’s offerings were designated to purchase coats, shoes and other items for Head Start students. Head Start is located in the east wing of the church.

Church members were on board wholeheartedly for this program and donations were generous, said Sally O’Connor, outreach chairperson.

O’Connor accompanied Anna Alvarez, the Head Start family relations director, to purchase the items for the kids.  “This was a wonderful project and heartwarming, too,” O’Connor said. “The coats were distributed during the annual Head Start program Tuesday evening. The children performed songs for their families and friends. It was a happy event.”
