Congratulations to Mileva Savich and Nancy Samardzija for successfully organizing a blanket swap to benefit children in orphanages in Serbia. On Sunday, March 13th, blanket donors received one of 280 Gold Canyon Candles or one of 50 pieces of Lia Sophia Jewelry, donated by Mileva and Nancy. St. Elijah Church provided a spacious facility for the Sunday afternoon event. Donna Stojsavljevich Kennedy and Branka Manojlovich set up a bake sale with pastries baked by ladies from local parishes. Diane Gligich and friends are busy crocheting colorful slippers with a goal of 1400. To date, they have finished more than 400 pairs., made from donated yarn. Lifeline Humanitarian Organization will soon distribute the twin sized blankets to children in poorly furnished Serbian orphanages. Please support this valuable organization. Monetary donations are always welcome.
Sunday of Orthodoxy will certainly be a busy one. This will be a fun afternoon event for the girls, and you'll feel better knowing that you've help keep a Serbian orphan child warm. After the blanket swap, join us for Sunday of Orthodoxy Vespers at St. Sava, starting at 6:00 p.m.
