The Colfax garage is open now that the stay-at-home order is lifted. Remember, no TVs/computer monitors or vehicle tires.

DIRECT YOUR DOLLARS FUNDRAISER: $75,634.00 total. $150,000.00 total = $1,000.00 check. We're over halfway there! Put your D&W/Family Fare receipts in the TOMRA/DYD box at the Hospitality Table or in the receipt mailbox just outside the Colfax garage door.

PAPER GATORS ARE OPEN:  Church receives a penny a pound for the recycled paper. That may not sound like much but 3 full bins every 3 weeks = $84.00. Carry that out for 1 year and we have over $1,400.00 to do good things in our community!
