There are only 4 more days left in LOVE Week, and many more opportunities still open, it's not too late to get involved. Our goal for the week was to reach 25,000 volunteer hours. And we have already reached over 18,000 hours!!
I'm so proud to be a part of a movement that is making such an impact in our city. And I know you are too! I want to know what you have been doing. Leave a comment telling us where you have volunteered this week!
This morning Elijah and Graham volunteered at Bright Beginnings (see below). They are making birthday packets for homeless children.
Here's a quick look at some of the projects that have been going on through out the week.
Our goal for Samaritan’s Feet was 10,000 shoes processed. In one weekend we processed 17,279 pairs of shoes! That is 5 months worth of work for Samaritan's Feet!
Stuff The Truck
We contacted our Outreach partners to see what their greatest needs were. Starting with last weekend, at each campus we have been collecting everything from clothing to books for schools. This is a great way that we can provide for our outreach partners in a big way. The trucks will be there this weekend so it's not too late to bring stuff with you!
Christ Our Shepherd
Christ Our Shepherd ministries exists to empower single parents to reach financial and spiritual security by providing quality children's programs, education and life skills in a Christian environment, and provide quality Christian resources and children's programs to the community at large.
Jackson Park is an incredible ministry with a vision "to see the families, children and all individuals of Jackson Park, Charlotte and surrounding communities come to know Christ as their Savior and Lord; becoming productive citizens in the community and serving others as a disciple of Christ." Our volunteers spent time cleaning up their facilities this week.
Bright Blessings vision is to bring joy, recognition and support to homeless children and families during difficult times. Volunteers spent time this week putting together birthday gift baskets for kids who otherwise would not be getting anything on their birthday. It was a great way for children to get involved with LOVE Week and volunteer with their parents.
