Last Day of GO Week!

After the devotional to start our day, we wrote letters to children at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. After some teambuilding time, we put together some Easter Decorations for a local senior assisted living facility. It was a joy to serve with the kids for the week, and we hope everyone enjoys a much needed Spring Break!

Hand To Hold- Day 4

Eight sophomore girls, Mrs. Christopher and Mrs. Brandon, spent four days during GoWeek partnering with a non-profit organization called Hand To Hold. This non-profit offers “in-person” and “virtual” support groups and resources for NICU families. This international advocacy group reaches out to moms wrestling with the dire needs of their babies in the Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Hand To Hold provides tangible resources—-and we were invited to be a tiny part of that.

Foster Village- Day 3

On day three, we continued to serve with The Foster Village at their Austin location. Today, we finished building the playhouse, assembled IKEA furniture for their new office, sorted and packed kids’ clothes, built a concrete step, power washed and stained the fence, and made a patio for the backyard. We are so grateful to work with this amazing organization and can’t wait to see the final product tomorrow!

Soup and Water!

After the devotional to start our day, we spent time putting together soup kits for new members of Community First Village! After some fun scavenger hunt time, we took part in a presentation and activity from Well Aware, educating the students on sustainable solutions to water scarcity and contamination in different parts of the world.

Hand to Hold- Day 3

Our experiences today opened our eyes to the needs of moms who have newborn babies born in great need. Hand To Hold is a non-profit organization holding up the tender needs of moms with babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Our service projects today provided tangible support, allowing moms and babies to bond. Our great joy of creating 500 “Scent Cloths” met their great need of holding onto little lives. We were a team of 8 Sophomore girls.
