Through Diakon Kathryn's Kloset, congregational donation reaches those in need

Baltimore, Md. (Monday July 6, 2015)

St. Paul Lutheran Church in Fulton, Maryland, has made a difference in the lives of young woman in Dundalk, Maryland, thanks to its donation to Diakon Kathryn's Kloset.

The congregation at 11797 Scaggsville Rd. recently undertook a collection of baby items for the Diakon program.

According to Wade Brown, executive director of Diakon Kathryn's Kloset, the items were in turn sent to The Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County, Inc., in Dundalk. The program "provides essential and life-saving services to family members experiencing conflict and family violence," according to the program's website.

"The center had some young women there who could certainly use the items," says Brown. "We—and those served—deeply appreciate the congregation's support."

The Diakon Kathryn's Kloset warehouse ministry solicits and stores cleaning, personal-care, and similar items donated by corporations and other organizations and then makes those products available to partner ministries regionally and nationally. Those non-profit organizations in turn provide the products to people in need in their communities, without cost to the end-recipient.
