Helpers are needed to organize service projects for Family Service Day.
The Family Service Project is an annual tradition for Providence families to volunteer at 5-6 stations in the Great Room. Examples are preparing sandwiches to feed the homeless, creating packages for families adopting animals at the Humane Society, putting together Easter baskets for children staying at Mary’s Place shelter in Minneapolis, and more. The goal of the FSP is for parents to work side-by-side with their children to model the importance of giving of ourselves, our time, and our treasure to others in need. This is especially important as we enter the season of Lent, when we focus on prayer, sacrifice, and almsgiving (charity). Last year over 175 students and family members volunteered, let’s make it 200 this year!
If you would like to coordinate one of the projects for that day, please contact Britt Goetze: and Matt Stearns: . The committee has projects in need of volunteers but is always seeking new ideas if you would like to manage a new project.
Fall Fun Fair proceeds help to fund the projects. However, February 12 – 23 , we will be collecting items to fill the Easter baskets for the children at Mary’s Place. Details about specific items needed will be in the E-Bulletin and teacher newsletters next week.
