Celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Our Cuba Partnership!

Dear Plymouth Church,

Please help us demonstrate our love of God and our Cuban neighbors of Ebenezer Baptist Church, with our presence during their 75th anniversary celebration, and with our gifts of items they need and cannot otherwise obtain. Help us show Justice & Kindness with these gifts. We will certainly show radical love, everywhere and always, throughout our visit, with our EBC pastors and friends.

Why? Plymouth Church has a ten-year relationship with Ebenezer Baptist Church in Havana, Cuba. We’ve visited our EBC church pastors and friends several times. Each time, a number of Plymouth Church members share our love of God and our Cuban neighbors, learning and appreciating the culture and loving community. A group of seven from Plymouth will travel to Cuba October 9-17, 2022, to join in celebrating Ebenezer Baptist Church’s 75th Anniversary.

Our Cuban friends need a number of items we can easily purchase here in our numerous stores. They don’t have the same access to these items. We will bring as many of these much needed items with us as we travel to Cuba.

Here’s how you can help: Buy 7 or 5 bottles of these over-the-counter medicines. Buy 7 or 5 of the other much-needed items. Bring them to church on Sunday, Oct 2nd, or on Saturday, Oct. 1st. Help us fill these seven suitcases!

What do they need? Aspirin, Tylenol, Advil/Motrin, Tums, Pepcid, Alka-Selzer or other antacids, laxatives, Claritin, Benadryl, Multi-Vitamins, Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Folic Acid, Prenatal Vitamins.

What else do they need? Insect repellant with DEET, mosquito netting, antibiotic ointment, band-aids. And, prepackaged snacks, like granola bars, trail mix, mixed nuts.

We will bring these in-kind donations and funds with us in these suitcases when we travel to Cuba October 9-17, 2022. Seven travelers, including pastors LeAnn Stubbs and Rushing Kimball, are going to Cuba to celebrate EBC’s 75th anniversary and our partnership. These in-kind donations of much needed items that cannot be obtained in Cuba are needed for EBC’s ministries in their community. Our Cuban neighbors will appreciate your generosity.

Muchas gracias!
