The Social Justice Council is once again holding sign vigils in front of the church on the fourth Tuesday of the month, from 8:00 to 8:45. We have signs reflecting our values, or you can bring your own. If you haven't come before, come join us!
 
 
Our Share the Plate for the month of February is Angel Heart Pajama Project: ANGEL
 
Angel Heart Pajama Project is a non-profit organization that provides pajamas and books to children in need.
  • New pajamas, new books, and cuddle pillows give children a comforting and nurturing bedtime routine and promotes literacy.
  • Since 2013 Angel Heart Pajama Project has delivered close to 30,000 pajamas and books.
  • Established a library at Tucson Children’s Clinic located near TMC campus.
  • Promoted literacy and literacy development through the love books and pajamas.
Angel Heart Pajama Project’s primary purpose is to distribute new pajamas, books, and cuddle pillows to enrich children’s lives and to share love. The children we help are in foster care, shelters, or are homeless. By providing free pajamas and books to children, we are able to bring the comfort of a warm hug at bedtime.
The impact of an investment in Angel Heart Pajama Project will be profound.
  • Children will have a sense of ownership in new pajamas and a new book.
  • Children will experience a sense of self, comfort, and security.
  • Children will participate in literacy development activities.
  • Children will develop a love for reading, which is the first step to literacy.
