Do Good, Feel Good, Have Fun!

On Sunday, April 22nd from 10:30 - 2:30, Wyoming Presbyterian Church (WPC) will be buzzing with activity as two local service programs set up shop on the church lawn. 

WPC will partner with Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter to host a pet “spa” and animal adoption event from 11:00-2:00.     Pet services will include:  dog washing, pedicures, massages, and pet micro-chipping - so every pet can be returned to their home safely if they are ever lost.  In addition, there will be some wonderful dogs and cats available for adoption. All donations will go directly to Mt. Pleasant, a non-profit animal welfare organization that is 100% funded through donations.   Donations of critical items will be greatly appreciated, such as Pro Plan dry dog and puppy food, Purina dry cat and kitten chow, non-clumping clay cat litter (unscented), 42 gallon garbage bags, HE liquid laundry detergent, paper towels, and germicidal bleach.  This event is open to all who love their special four-legged family members! 

WPC also invites you to come 'Stuff the Bus' with MEND!  MEND is an interfaith network of 17 food pantries in Essex County committed to “Meeting Essential Needs with Dignity”. MEND will have its “Green Bean” parked at the church from 10:30–2:30.  The “Green Bean” is a school bus, converted into a healthy food collection vehicle and mobile food pantry for under-served communities.  WPC invites friends from the community to help “stuff the bus” with healthy, non-perishable items:  hot & cold cereals (low sugar), canned or dried fruits & beans, canned vegetables (low or no salt), pasta (whole wheat or regular), rice (1 lb bag), peanut butter, tuna (in water), and shelf safe milk.
