Listen. Learn. Love: Serving our Neighbors
Listen. Learn. Love. Is our theme for this year. One way to do this is by serving our neighbors out in the community. This year we are trying to have at least one service project each month for people of all ages. Times and locations vary to try to appeal to a broad audience.
Where We Have Served
Bundles of Love in September. The projects included sorting baby clothes and cutting out baby sleepers.
Feed My Starving Children in October. Packing meals to feed children around the world.
Sheridan’s Story Food Packing in November. The warehouse where bags of food are packaged is in Roseville. These are then boxed up and sent to 700 schools in the metro area. One of them is Central Park Elementary that we partner with.
Want to Get Involved?
Plymouth Christian Youth Center December 14 – PCYC holds a gift sale on Saturday, Dec. 14 in which children can shop for gifts for their families. Volunteer spots are available to set up for the sale or to help a child shop during the sale. If you wish to volunteer, contact Anne Haugan.
Second Harvest January 20 – On Martin Luther King Day, Second Harvest in Brooklyn Park hosts service opportunities for children and adults. Watch for sign ups coming soon!
Available During the Day?
If you are available on Friday mornings, we’d love to have you participate with distributing food to student backpacks at Central Park Elementary. This food goes home with low income students on the weekend so they don’t have a “food gap.” Sign up here.
Prince of Peace also started a food shelf at Roseville Area Middle School. Jennifer Duncan stocks this food shelf. Last year volunteers served at RAMS on Friday afternoons. This year the school has changed the process and it is administered by school staff.
