Fairmont Ministry Update

We are now collecting school supplies for the teachers and students at Fairmont School. Many times, teachers spend their own money to purchase supplies for their students. We can help them by filling the donation bin in the Welcome Room with the following…

  • Dry Erase Markers
  • Cellophane Tape
  • Air Fresheners
  • blu tack removable adhesive putty
  • Quart and Gallon Zipper Plastic Bags

In addition to school supplies, we are collecting new and gently used kid’s books.

Fairmont Needs Volunteers for Jump Rope for Heart Event

Fairmont School is looking for volunteers who are available to help the Fairmont kids (and gym teachers) with their “Jump Rope for Heart” event next Wednesday, February 7th. It goes from 8:20 am to 2:20 pm. 

We love it that the Fairmont staff is including us in these events! There will be a sign up sheet on Sunday, or you can just email Pastor Dana (danalobrien@gmail.com ) if you can help.

You are invited to help in either of two ways:

  1. Helpers are needed during the event to monitor kids, hand out snacks and jump with the kids. (Parents will also be helping so this is a great opportunity to get to know some of the families.) (Dana will be helping from about 8 to 10:30.)
  2. Healthy snacks are needed for the jumpers. Those can be brought to COG (or my house at 16759 West Sioux in Lockport) anytime before Wednesday morning at 7:30), or you can take them yourself if you’re going to help at the event.) 

SNACKS REQUESTED (NO PEANUTS OR PEANUT BUTTER SNACKS, PLEASE!)
Only the following snacks are allowed for this event: 

  • Raw Vegetable Sticks/slices (individually wrapped if possible)
  • Fresh fruit slices (individually wrapped if possible)
  • Dried fruits such as raisins, cranberries, or apples
  • Single serving applesauce
  • Single serving fruit cups
  • Pretzels (individual bags if possible)
  • Reduced Fat Crackers (individual bags if possible)
  • Fruit Snacks
  • Granola Bars WITHOUT PEANUT BUTTER
  • Apples
  • Oranges
  • Clementine Oranges

Fairmont Ministry Update

Recently, we dropped off​ 48 cans of spray deodorant and 39 sports bras, which were all given to the gym teachers. We got the following thank-you note…

Dear Pastor O’Brien and Members of Cross of Glory Church,

          Thank you for donating the anti-perspirant deodorant and undergarments for our female students. We are truly grateful for this donation. Your generosity reminds us that we are in this community together. This donation will help our student’s overall health and wellness.

In the wise words of Helen Keller, “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.”

We are now collecting school supplies for the teachers and students at Fairmont School. Many times, teachers spend their own money to purchase supplies for their students. We can help them by filling the donation bin in the Welcome Room with the following…

  • #2 Pencils
  • Facial Tissue
  • Scissors
  • Clorox Wipes
  • Colored Construction Paper

Note: If you still have deodorant and/or sports bras to donate, please bring them in.

Fairmont Ministry – Collecting Spray Deodorant and Bras

We are collecting items for the kids at Fairmont School in Lockport. We’ve started with something practical by collecting two things for the middle school kids:

  • Cans of Aerosol Spray Deodorant (It needs to be aerosol so that it can be shared)
  • Sports Bras – single color white or blue (nothing fancy)

A bin for collecting the items is in the Welcome Room.
