May 2020 We Are Still Here & We Need YOU
Helping others in need is the goal of this committee.
With this unprecedented physical separation from TBS, we are not able to continue our collections as we
normally do. There are so many ways to help, however, so let’s all do our best to help in the ways that we can.
● Call someone to see how they are doing today
● Make a cotton face mask
● Make a financial donation to the many agencies that are helping medical personnel get the supplies they
● Make a financial donation to agencies collecting food and then disseminating to those in need ( DESK website has many ideas https//:www.deskct.org).
