Our church has adopted Camacho Elementary School where we serve as Literacy Partners. Volunteers read to a child for 30 minutes once a week from November through May.
You you would like make a positive difference in a child’s life and demonstrate God’s compassion by becoming a literacy partner, you can register HERE.
FOOD 4 KIDS MINISTRY:
We participate in the Backpack Program–Food 4 Kids ministry which provides food for the weekend for students in need from Camacho Elementary, our neighborhood elementary school. You can help support this ministry by donating funds to help us purchase specific food items or by donating any of the following food items:
♦ Apple sauce cups
♦ Bags of chips (individually packed)
♦ Canned carrots
♦ Campbell’s homestyle soup
♦ Canned corn
♦ Boxes of mac-n-cheese
♦ Cans of mixed vegetables
♦ Fruit cups
♦ Canned ravioli or spaghetti meatball
♦ Ramen noodles
♦ Cheez-its (individually packed)
♦ Fruit snack pouches
♦ Oatmeal (individually packed)
Donations are collected in the marked bin in the church breezeway. This giving is making a huge impact in the lives of children in our neighborhood!
The Helping Hand program supports homeless youth in Leander ISD. You may think homeless youth are pretty rare, but sadly this is incorrect. Many youth have no permanent place to sleep and “couch surf” from friends to friends. These youth need school supplies, personal hygiene items and gift cards to fast food restaurants and stores such as HEB, Wal-Mart, Target, etc. Please consider helping these teenagers. Being a teenager is hard enough. Imagine how hard it must be to be a homeless teen!
We collect for the Helping Hands program throughout the entire school year and there is a donation bin in the breezeway of the education building.
HILL COUNTRY COMMUNITY MINISTRIES:
We have an ongoing collection of cereal and canned fruit for Hill Country Community Ministries, a local food pantry which serves families in our community. Donations are collected in the basket in the back of the church sanctuary.
