This year's event was held for students entering grades 4 - 12. Activities included traveling to pack food at St. Mary's Food Bank and also at Feed My Starving Children. At church our youth sewed 134 masks for Open Arms Home for Children, assembled 120 towel wrap gifts for the residents at New Life Center, braided 164 pull toys for Saving Paws Rescue Center, and made 60 pillows for Trevor's Vision.
The kids also filled 100 brown bag lunches including homemade brownie muffins and peanut butter sandwiches, as well as encouragement cards, to be given to Trevor's Vision to feed the homeless. On Friday they cleaned baseboards, washed windows, and polished pews; then walked to Litchfield Park Recreation Center to swim, and back to church for a Pizza Party.
It was a full week of service by fifty very enthusiastic volunteers!
