NEW FILM ON OUR SANCTUARY WINDOWS New film was installed on some of our windows last week in order to decrease glare and fading caused by the sun. This project was paid for by generous donations to the capital campaign. We have also installed a new “bird of paradise” design for the lower windows on the mauka side of the church, which also includes a tint to reduce glare and fading—thanks to a very generous anonymous donor!
WINDOW CLEANING We are looking for someone to clean our church windows. If you know of anyone capable or are willing to volunteer, please let Penny know.
VILLAGE HARVEST Have leftover produce or fruit tree droppings? Don’t waste it (and get a tax deduction too!). Village Harvest will pick up or harvest your unwanted still-fresh produce and deliver it to those who need it most, through schools, after school programs and food banks. You will receive a donation receipt. Call 828-0685 x20 or VillageHarvest@malamakauai.org.
