Olive Oil Sales to Help Fund Covid-19 Relief in Gaza
We are partnering with other churches in the DMV this June to extend our “Olive Oil Ministry” to help support the Al-Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza. The hospital—a Global Ministries partner of the United Church of Christ—provides critical care to Gaza residents without regard to religion, ethnicity, or financial situation. After years of war and conflict, many Gaza residents live without adequate housing, sewer systems, or water supplies, leaving them especially vulnerable to the covid-19 pandemic. Proceeds from our olive sales will help to supply the hospital with equipment and medicine urgently needed to respond to this crisis. We are taking orders through the end of June for Nabali, Rumi, or Jenin olive oil at $25 per half-liter bottle. For more information on the ministry and details on how to order, please refer to the email (subject line: “First Church olive oil sales”) that was sent via the Church’s listserv. Or inquire by email to Karen Byrne (email@example.com) or John Smeltzer (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you for helping with this important ministry!
