THE BIRTHDAY OFFERING is one of Presbyterian Women’s two offerings. Received in the spring each year, it gives women a tangible way to celebrate the blessings in their lives! The Birthday Offering funds up to five projects each year, in amounts of $75,000 to $150,000 each. The recipients are selected before the offering is received, so grant amounts depend on the gifts received. In 2019, three projects received funding through Presbyterian Women’s Birthday Offering. Your gift to the Birthday Offering will allow PW to provide funding to Disaster Response Team, Effingham Child Development Center, Presbyterian Homes and Services of Kentucky, Inc, and Wings of Refuge.
LET'S CELEBRATE KINDNESS! Write your kind act on a piece of paper and drop it in one of the red baskets (State Street entrance, 10th Street entrance and on the landing by the elevator). For example 21 people assisted with the "extra" RITI night this week. These can be anonymous submissions, acts completed at your workplace, donations to causes, or just simply a smile given to someone in need. Let's see how quickly we reach 200!
