Although our Craft Circle isn't formalized, we usually support a charity by using our talents in some way. One year, we made blankets for infants through Touching Little Lives. Another time, we made blankets again, but this time they were given to children in the foster care system. We have many talented crafters and are always looking for groups that can benefit from our sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting or scrapbooking.
Zion's members support many organizations and ministries in West Jefferson, Madison County, Columbus, Ohio, the United States and the World. These are just a few:
Good Samaritan Fund: Many West Jefferson congregations support the Good Samaritan Fund financially. Money is used to help residents and passsers-through with gas, food, utility bills
Good Samaritan Food Pantry: Housed in the basement of West Jefferson United Methodist Church, the food pantry provides much need food for those within West Jefferson who need food. Once a month, Zion members pack the boxes which are given to families in need.
Adopt-A-Family: Every Christmas, Zion's members adopt a family within the community to provide Christmas gifts and a holiday meal that the family otherwise would not have. We also collect mittens, gloves and hats. Many members knit or crochet the items themselves.
Lutheran Social Services of Central Ohio: Everyday, Lutheran Social Services of Central Ohio (LSS) helps thousands of people in need throughout 50 Ohio counties by addressing the four core societal issues of hunger, housing, healing and hope.
