MISSIONS OF DONEGAL CHURCH
The Missions of Donegal Church are those efforts which reach out beyond our immediate community to help support a global need.

Mission Tour Program
Learn more about the annual Mission Tour program to upstate New York, performing rural rehab work in cooperation with MINC-- Mission in the North Country.
Occasionally we prepare and serve a meal at the Columbia Shelter. We can’t cook on site, so preparation is simple, with reheating (at most) at the shelter. We start the meal at 10:30 AM, and usually need help for the morning to early afternoon. Contact a member of the Donegal Outreach Team (DOT) to participate in our next service event there.
During the Summer Food Program in Columbia, Judy Kay Bard and I gave away over 1,000 books to children. Thanks to generous donations of gently used children’s books I’ve been able to keep the mission program going. Today (September 20th) I attended the Columbia Presbyterian Church’s monthly lunch program and had a table full of books for the children to choose from. I’m also going to the Boys & Girls Club of Columbia once a month to give books to the children in that program. I saw many of the friends I’d made over the summer at both locations. They call me the “Book Lady” and were happy to see me, as I was to see them. Anyone that has books to donate, please contact me at (910) 547-2484 or at the special email I’ve set up for program KidsLuvBooks@aol.com. There is also a wish list on Amazon.com under that email, where it’s possible to purchase used books for .01 with shipping costing 3.99 (or occasionally free). I’ve purchased many books at this price and they have always arrived promptly and in just like new condition. Thank you to all that helped make this dream of mine (giving books to children) a reality.
Thank you for supporting our Sale of Fair Trade Coffee!
Profits from these sales not only go to small-scale farmers, but Equal Exchange also donates a portion of our sales to the Presbyterian Hunger Program. Since we purchase the coffee thru the interfaith program, we can offer you the coffee at a price lower than you will find fair trade coffee in the grocery store! Check out our new flavors at the coffee stand in Fellowship Hall! Any questions or requests, call Pat Garrigan at 367-2659.
