Crafters bring their wares to Jordan Lutheran Church

Jordan Lutheran Church, Orefield, hosted its 26th annual fall craft fair Nov. 17 in fellowship hall.

Not only were there crafts to purchase for Christmas gifts, but also delicious soups and barbecue available for lunch and home baked goods for sale.

A raffle benefited Family Promise of Lehigh Valley which helps children and families by providing housing and meals to homeless families.

There are 497 families in the Lehigh Valley who are in immediate need of housing.

In an attempt to bring that number to zero, host sites provide overnight lodging and meals for each family in the care of the Family Promise.

Jordan Lutheran Church is one of the volunteer sites.
