Metcalfe Shoebox Mission fundraising includes bake sale

From Carol Perkins via Kim Harwood

Metcalfe Shoebox Mission Needs Help. One month remains for the gathering of items, packing boxes, and raising funds to make it possible to reach our goal of 1,200 boxes (up only 50 from last year). $10 will fill one box.

Reminder of the Bake Sale at ESB on Friday, October 6, 2023, and I'll be at the Pumpkin Festival to accept contributions/give out boxes to individuals or groups, and to sell the hoodies and tees that were donated by Metcalfe Florist, and then I "decorated" them.

This is one giant community project unlike any we've ever done!!! Any ESB can take your donation, too. Make checks to Metcalfe Shoebox Mission. You can also Venmo or GoFundMe Metcalfe Shoebox. For more information about OCC in Metcalfe County, you can contact Carol at

NOTE: National Collection Week for OCC is Nov 13-20, 2023. If you or your church would like more information about OCC in Adair, Casey, Green, Hart, Metcalfe and Taylor counties, you can contact Area Coordinators Mark Fudge at 270-634-2919 or Denise Fudge at 270-634-0246.
