"It takes a village to raise a child" is a popular proverb with a clear message: the whole community has an essential role to play in the growth and development of its young people. Here at Calvary, we have joined our neighborhood school, Lewis and Clark, in a partnership to help meet the needs of children and teacher. Lewis and Clark Elementary is a part of our village.
We are so excited to partner with Lewis and Clark in a number of ways. We have already identified children who have benefited from our Christmas Angel Tree and the Hat/Mitten Tree. The youth at Calvary have donated money to assist with snacks for hungry children and for transportation to school.
During the six weeks of Lent, we are sponsoring a clothing drive for the children who could use some help at home and also to have on hand if students need a change of clothing at school.
Week One: March 2
Socks and Underwear (kids sizes 5-12)
