Crafts And Crochet For Christ

My name is Deborah and I have recently joined a very small, country church near New London, WI. Their building is very old and in need of much TLC. I spoke with the pastor about any crafting clubs and they have none, so I decided I would buckle down and learn some new crafts to help get a group going to raise money for the church. Currently they have no air conditioning and very little ventilation. An elderly lady was taken to the hospital by ambulance last summer from the heat, so people quit going during the summer season. I have a Facebook group:
Links to the church are on my group page, but I will include them here also:

Please help us if you have any craft products or yarn that you can't sell. Currently, crochet yarn seems to be our biggest need! Due to limited space in the church, the pastor has asked me to store any products here in my spacious extra empty room. The address is
Deborah Rice
c/o Grace Lutheran Church
313 Wyman Street
New London, WI 54961

Thank you!!
