CATCH Court Lunches & Support for Human Trafficking Survivors
“Changing Actions to Change Habits” is a court led by Judge Paul Herbert that changes lives of women who are moving from being victims of sex trafficking to being thriving members of our community. It changes the hearts of those of us who are honored to see it in action. Join us in taking lunch to these amazing women. We go once a month and always need help. Contact Katie Kinnison or watch our weekly bulletins for more info. Lunches are financed by the operating budget of Mission & Social Concerns, and by additional donations.
- Lunch dates are 1st Thursday Each Month. You can make a dessert and drop it off ahead of time. You can come with us (meet at the church at 11:30am) and serve lunch and/or stay to see CATCH Court in action. Sign up on the Mission & Social Justice board in the hall or contact email@example.com for more information.
Also, we're making toiletry kits for women released from jail who have very little support. Five to eight bags are needed each month at $15 each. You may donate to help the cause or contact Katie Kinnison. Checks should be made out to Covenant with Human Trafficking in the memo line.
And, we are always collecting stamps and stationery for the women of CATCH to write encouraging letters to each other and to women currently in prison. We are also collecting shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and tampons. These can be left in the bins outside the narthex or the church office.
