During September, Second Presbyterian is collecting women toiletry items (excluding razors), new bras and underwear, and shower flip-flops for TurnAround Inc.
At both worship services on September 17th, Rosalyn Branson, the CEO of TurnAround, will be sharing a few words about their program. She will also be speaking informally to those interested in learning more about TurnAround between the two worship services in a room near the coffee and refreshments.
