In her darkest time, suddenly homeless and afraid, Amanda turned to our mission partner, Homestretch for protection and provision. VPC has partnered with Homestretch for several years, but recently has deepened our relationship by becoming a Sacred Homes partner. Homestretch has matched our church with a family in our community that is working to propel themselves out of homelessness and poverty through Homestretch’s transformational program. Together we as a church will provide financial assistance so that our matched family can move from homelessness to a home of their own and engage in hands-on acts of support. Click here to find out more about our mission partner, Homestretch and to see how you might help support the tangible, relational and spiritual needs of our Sacred Homes family.
Cunningham Park Summer Help
We are collecting gently used books for a summer library at Cunningham Park Elementary, reading level K-Grade 3. Also, the ESOL teachers at Cunningham Park Elementary School create Summer Activity Bags for about 75 students each year. These bags are full of educational games, puzzles, books (for K to 2nd grade reading levels) and more for students to enjoy over the summer. Gently used items are gratefully accepted! There is also an Amazon Wishlist:
A collection box is outside the Great Hall and we are collecting items until 5/25.
