REMINDERS  & THANKS  ! !  To Providence Coupon Clippers

Seal of United States Fleet Activities YokosukaYour Congregational Care Team wants to remind you that overseas military bases will accept expired grocery coupons.  If you are one of our faithful ‘clippers,’ please save and sort [food/non-food] coupons you don’t use to help our military families save money on their groceries

$$  (When you see coupons for expensive items, such as baby formula, diapers, and detergents, think about clipping them even if you don’t use them yourself.)  $$

Thank you for doing a great job all these years!  We have been mailing between 4 and 5 pounds of coupons every second to third month, since we started.  Coupons can be redeemed at base exchanges for up to 6 months from the expiration date,

This is the last week to donate your clipped coupons and sorted coupons for a few months! 

Sorting?  YES!  Food vs. Non-Food (please)

Remember to bring them in before Sunday, February 25.  Thank you so much for helping our military families so far away in Japan!

From now until Easter Sunday (March 31), Providence Presbyterian Church will be collecting toward the One Great Hour of Sharing offering. The three programs supported by One Great Hour of Sharing – Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, the Presbyterian Hunger Program, and Self-Development of People – all work in different ways to serve individuals and communities in need. From initial disaster response to ongoing community development, their work fits together to provide people with safety, sustenance, and hope.





Winter Weather

In the event of inclement weather, any church cancellations or change in schedule will be sent via email to the congregation.  It will also be posted to the Providence Presbyterian Facebook page and our church website (providencepc-altoona.org).  Please check these sites before venturing out.  Phone calls will only be made to the individuals who do not have access to the internet.
