Bethesda Project: My Brother's House: Saturday, January 28, 11am-1pm
We'll be cooking and serving lunch at My Brother's House shelter and hanging out with the residents. You can also contribute by chipping in for food costs or preparing some of the food even if you can't come help serve the meal. Please e-mail Sung Park (firstname.lastname@example.org) if interested in helping.
Bone Marrow Drive: Sunday, February 5
Korean American Helping Hands Foundation will be holding a bone marrow screening for 2-year-old Ally, living in the UK, who suffers from a rare potentially fatal disease called Chronic Granulomatous Disorder. The screening involves only a cheek swab. Please volunteer 5 minutes of your time to potentially help this child. Screenings will be done on February 5, on the 2nd floor during fellowship time after both services. We do need 5 volunteers to help out with the set up. Please contact Deacon Ed Lee (email@example.com) if you're able to help.
