HOLIDAY GIFT IDEAS FROM ODE
Honor a friend or family member at Christmas with a donation to the Open Door Exchange mattress fund. The most requested item from the families served by ODE is a mattress. Many, many children and adults on Long Island do not have a mattress to sleep on at night.
ODE maintains a designated fund to purchase new, discounted mattresses for individuals and families with the greatest need, and is offering special Christmas donation cards that you can give to loved ones to let them know a gift of good sleep has been made in their honor.
Beginning the first Sunday in Advent, November 27, 2016, look for an ODE volunteer in the Fellowship Hall, and every Sunday until Christmas.
We’ll also be selling ODE t-shirts for $10—another great holiday gift!
FAIR TRADE GOODS
The Peace and Justice Committee offers fairly traded coffee, tea and other goods for purchase during Fellowship Hour.
Fair Trade is a way of doing business that ultimately aims to keep small farmers an active part of the world marketplace, and aims to empower consumers to make purchases that support their values.
By making the choice to buy fairly traded products, you help provide health care, education and technical training for farmers, workers, and artisans.
Stop by our table in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday!
Inspired by our Fair Trade Fair, Here are pointers to some alternative gift sources:

Defensive Driving Course is online
Several years ago, the church sponsored a Defensive Driving course. You can now take the course online. The online course is just as boring, just as informative and not as much fun as socializing with other drivers and you still have to sit for 6 hours, but you can take it at your convenience and in your pajamas. Well, some people did take the class at church in their pajamas.
The Senior High Youth Group doesn’t make any money from this, but you can always give us a bigger donation at one of our other fundraising events. And we hope that this will help someone somewhere avoid a collision.
Your Defensive Driving renewal notice in the mail may have up-to-date information, but to go to a web site which gives you a discount and a link to the online course, click on the link below.

And, of course, there is a Presbyterian Church(USA) Store.
