An update from Judy Palmer: "Grace Church is running a yard sale on April 13. They could use any donated items that could be sold at the sale. Specifically, items that we might send to a thrift store could be sent to Grace and they would benefit. Please put any donated items under the coat rack in the undercroft.

Father Fitzpatrick also said there is a great need for bicycles, even if they are not working. There is someone in the congregation who does repairs. Also, microwave ovens, fans, window air conditioners are other items would be much appreciated."
