Supporting Kommunity Kindness
There is a $1000 match challenge
Kommunity Kindness is a ministry based in Yukon which focuses on supporting families affected by Mental Illness. The aims are to provide support groups, advocate for legislation and move toward providing transportation and temporary housing.
Right now, they have a $1000 matching challenge. If you want to help them get that matching money, you can write a check to Kommunity Kindness, or you can donate to RLC and put in the memo “Kommunity Kindness.” Thanks!

We now Have a Book Sharing Box (Focus on Youth Books) and a Food Box at RLC to Serve Our Community
Two members of RLC who are also Boy Scouts chose RLC and the surrounding community for their Eagle Scout projects in 2021. Our most recent addition (Dec) is a book sharing box on our property. The focus is sharing books for young people in the surrounding area.
In June 2021, our first box was installed: a food sharing box, where people who need food can select items from the box. Donated food items are always appreciated.

June Parking Lot Blood Drive a Success
We had 13 people donate blood. The Blood Bank was very pleased as the need has been significantly higher, partly due to Covid. Thank you for supporting our community!

Flowers for Residents of Gran Grans in Yukon, May
This morning I had the pleasure of delivering "Happy Spring" blessings to Gran Gran's Place on behalf of Resurrection Lutheran Church for our May Community Outreach.
We gave them five dozen roses--red and white roses for each of the 42 residents as well as 18 mixed-colored roses for the front desk.
Each resident also received a new box of 48 Crayons and a lovely coloring sheet with a Bible verse. Each month going forward, we will deliver another Bible verse coloring sheet for the residents.
Please pray that these gifts will lift their spirits and remind them that they're a beloved part of our community and not forgotten.
If you'd like to help with the cost of these gifts and future community blessings please add a little to your regular giving and specify the amount to be posted to OUTREACH.
BLESSINGS ON YOUR DAY!
Katherine Dawson, Vice President of Outreach
