Days for Girls

VPC hosts monthly meetings of the Northern Virginia Chapter of Days for Girls (DFG).  DfG ‘s chapters assemble and sew sustainable feminine hygiene kits with a  goal  of empowering every woman and girl to become an Ambassador of Women’s Health in her community. These beautiful and lovingly made kits open the gateway to larger conversations about health, safety, and leadership.  The VPC Days for Girls Chapter has made more than 1260 kits over the past year, many of which have been distributed through VPC mission efforts.

Please join us on May 20, from 1-5 pm in VPC’s lower level to cut, sew, and assemble more of the kits that will support health education and hygiene needs of young women all over the world.

 

6K Global Walk for Water:                           One Cause. One Weekend. All Nations.

6 kilometers is the average distance that people in the developing world walk for water — water that is often contaminated with life-threatening diseases. On Saturday, May 6th, 2017, people from around the globe will walk or run an average distance for an extraordinary cause. Each participant’s registration of $50 goes to World Vision’s Water Initiatives. After you register you will receive a World Vision Global 6K for Water t-shirt, race bib, and medal in the mail.  Why we walk. Registration.

Cunningham Park Mentoring Program

VPC is partnering with other local churches for the Mentoring/Tutoring program at Cunningham Park Elementary School.  Consider making a difference in the life of a child by weekly one on one meetings each Thursday from 3:30 until 4:30.  A recent pot luck dinner allowed the students families to meet with their mentor’s family, and it was a wonderful evening of celebration, fellowship and the love of Christ extended through our mentors.  Thursday has become the favorite day of the week for many of our student mentees! We also teamed with local churches to pack nutritious meals for students without adequate food on the weekends, and Cunningham Park now has enough food to provide for families through June of 2018.  Several other local schools were also supplied with this much appreciated food.  More mentors are needed and appreciated.  Questions?  Sue.hamblen@viennapres.org
