A bright and sunny Sunday morning greeted the worshipers as they entered Hemingway Memorial AME Church, a fitting backdrop for the celebration of the 39th anniversary of the Lucy Hart Missionary Society. We were honored to have the Reverend Dr. Gwendolyn Boyd as our guest speaker who encouraged all to continue our mission work.
As a part of our society's anniversary we conducted a Diaper and Baby Wipe drive where we asked church members and friends to contribute items to support The Greater DC Diaper Bank (GWDP). The drive collected over 10,000 diapers and 80 packs of baby wipes. What a blessing! We were able to present the gifts to the Executive Director of the GWDB, Rebecca Kolowe, who joined us in service and graciously received our donation.
Rev. Sheleta Fomby is our pastor, Sis. Barbara Oliver is our President and Sis. Brenda Green serves as out 2nd Vice President and GWDB Project Coordinator.
