We will not have a 50/50 draw this year but if you can collect refundable bottles or cans from your neighbors and cash them in for this work, it would be and added bonus. Donations can be placed in a separate envelope, marked Friends of Peru and placed in the Sunday collection. If you give us your email address we will try to keep in touch from Peru.
