Thanks to a grant, Quarles Elementary gives out food to students in need so that they have food to eat each weekend while they are away from school. We have the honor of helping sort and bag food for these students each week during the school year.
Throughout the year, we do projects to help and serve community organizations Some projects are financial, others involve collecting particular items, while still others involve physical labor.
There are four parts to our Christmas project this year:
1. We're once again supporting 30 families whose children attend Quarles Elementary School with a Christmas meal and gifts.
2. We're once again providing a gift card for each person who eats at the Winchester Rescue Mission as one of our Life Groups serves dinner there the Sunday before Christmas.
3. We're providing 10 Christmas trees for families associated with the Kids Clubs of the Northern Shenandoah Valley.
4. Our Kids and Student Ministries will be making and distributing Christmas ornaments for a local nursing home.
