One of the best ways to bond with family or friends is over a service project. Spread the joy of Christ by using one of the ideas below to help those in need in our Community!
Donate to the Food Pantry
Take the whole family to the grocery store with the focused goal of buying items needed in our food pantry. When you are in the canned goods section, it really helps if you buy items with pop-tops!
Hold a Clothes Drive
Ask your neighbors, friends, book club or running group to clean their closet or pick up a few extra items at the store. Clothes are particularly needed during the winter months when we need men’s pants, coats, sleeping bags, and blankets.
Host an International Student for a Meal
Whether it’s at Christmas or another time of the year, hosting an international student for dinner is a wonderful way to give back. Whether they are coming from VCU, the University of Richmond or Union Theological Seminary, there are plenty of students who long for a home cooked meal and friendly conversation.
