Let’s love our local community by providing school supplies for students and teachers.
Your generous donations will go directly toward our SchoolZone Store, which operates out of our Chase Oaks Family Center and will enable families from local schools to purchase a backpack and all of their required school supplies for only $5 per child. Even if kids are schooling from home this year, they will still need their school supplies to complete their assignments. Purchase supplies or sign up to serve here.
CREATIVE IDEAS ON HOW TO SERVE YOUR COMMUNITY
During this time of uncertainty, there are many ways to be a here for good neighbor in our community. Below are a few ideas. We will update this list as restrictions on groups change.
- Write encouraging words on cards and leave for neighbors, co-workers, or others in your community.
- Use sidewalk chalk to write notes and draw pictures on a neighbor’s driveway to thank them for being an awesome neighbor or to celebrate their birthday.
- Offer free babysitting to a couple in your neighborhood to give them time to work or have a break.
- Host a collection drive drop-off for the nearest local food pantry.
- Check in on any elderly in the neighborhood. Ring their doorbell and keep a safe distance.
- Go for a walk and clean up the trash in the neighborhood.
- Be present outdoors. You can practice your social distancing skills.
- Leave notes with neighbors letting them know you can help with shopping or dropping off food. Here’s a PDF you can download and print from home.
- Use this time to place a phone call, not a text, to someone and offer positive encouragement.
- Reach out with any kind of generosity offer. Use the Nextdoor app to see others’ needs in your neighborhood (e.g., drugstore and grocery trips, childcare, and food needs).
- Post positivity on social media. Now is your time to post encouragement and hope!
- Take a neighborhood walk and greet people while practicing social distancing (i.e., do not shake hands). They are more ready to talk right now.
- When someone shares anxiety, fear, or sickness, ask if you can pray for them. Be brief! Use common language.
- Drop off gift cards anonymously to someone needing encouragement. If they live further away, send eGift cards
