In addition to giving to Lydia Urban Academy, last weekend we were also able to provide funds for Carbon (our 3rd-5th graders) to partner with URLoved and the Salvation army to pack supplies for the homeless! Read this note from Jaclyn, a Carbon leader:
I wanted to shared with you all that our Carbon kids pack around 280 care packages for the homeless in Rockford. We are working with URLoved and the Salvation Army to deliver the items. The items should be delivered over the next few weeks. The care packages include a toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, gloves, jar of peanut butter, pack of crackers, a tuna pack and a letter that they wrote. It was a wonderful experience for our kids to be able to share the hope we find in Jesus with people in our city. Thanks so much for helping us do this amazing project.
Thank you for partnering with these great organizations. Keep dropping your loose change in the buckets every weekend and we’ll keep making change together!
