February 10 – Love Our School Day (may include other schools)

Sat, Feb. 10 | 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Our partners at School Connect SA are hosting service projects for schools across SA.  Volunteer opportunities include gardening, painting lockers or ceiling tiles, beautifying sites, etc.  This is a great way to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our city!  We still have a few schools that need volunteers.  If you, your family, or your church might be interested, please get in touch with Keli Caraveo at locktheshields@gmail.com for more information on projects and locations.

Donate to Washington Elementary School Store – All February

Washington Elementary needs help with the purchase of supplies for their school store.  The school store serves as a reward for hitting school attendance and academic goals.  Students earn points and are allowed to spend those points at the store.  You can purchase items from their Amazon wish list or feel free to drop off toys/items at FPC.
