Block mosquitoes in the tiny gap

Group 236


While we’re all thinking of mosquitoes this summer, generous giving in the synod has ALMOST provided one net to the ELCA Malaria Campaign per each synod member. Let’s do this!

by Dorothy Sorrell

The generous giving of our Metro D.C. Synod members has resulted in our total giving (as of July 1, 2014) to the ELCA Malaria Campaign at more than $328.000! That means that our per member giving is $9.92… The price of a mosquito net is $10.00.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could reach a $10.00 per member giving number by the end of this summer, while we’re thinking about mosquitoes?

We have a goal of 100% of our congregations participating in the ELCA Malaria Campaign, and at this time we are at about 65%. If your congregation has not been able to participate, please consider doing so now. Contact Dorothy Sorrell, Metro D.C. Synod Malaria Coordinator, at 703-591-2236 or for ideas, supplies or invitation to speak with your congregation or group.
