Hey guys and gals! I hope that you and your kidos are ready for an awesome year in AWANA at Mountain View. We are starting something new in AWANA by adding a monthly mission for the T&T group! Every month I will be taking a group of either guys or girls to the Hope Closet to help sort, organize, clean, iron and hang clothes that have been donated.
Now for those of you who don’t know what the Hope Closet is or where it is located, let me tell you. This organization came into existence due to government cuts that have removed clothing allowances and some reimbursements in the foster/adoption care services. With the abundance of kids that need fostering and adopting a group of people in our community decided to pull together and help make a difference. This is a non-profit organization that supports foster children and families with the ability to shop once a quarter for clothes, toys, books, and strollers. There will be more items as they are donated. It is located behind First Baptist Church in a white house at 374 Lee Street. There will be a grand opening this coming Thursday, August 14th! If you have items that you would like to donate, I am sure they would be very grateful to accept what you have.
Now as an extra bonus to making this a full-blown AWANA mission project, we are making a deal with the parents of the AWANA kids. Each year the dues for AWANA are $17.50. This covers the cost of books, uniforms and supplies. We will erase the dues for each kids that brings three new packages of socks or underwear (boys & girls) or a combination of the two items. By bringing the two packages of socks and one underwear or two underwear and one sock, your kids dues will be paid and you will have just helped other kids in our community!
