The LHM brings Christian hope and support to some of the most vulnerable people who live precarious lives on the streets. As we anticipate Easter and the joy of the resurrection can we bring hope and joy to those who are struggling? Can we collect 40 Easter Eggs to donate to the LHM in time for Easter? Any size egg would be welcomed. Linda Wunsch will collect the eggs and pass them on to the Chaplain at the LHM. Thank you!
