We will be working with Women & Children First: The Center Against Family Violence on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Info on WCF… “For the past 40 years, Women and Children First has worked tirelessly to empower women and their children to live independently and free from domestic violence. WCF provides crisis intervention, safe shelter, social and legal advocacy and support services.”
Half of our crew each day will interact with the children and families at the center while the “work crew” cleans, organizes, works on landscaping and completes other odd jobs for the facility. We will rotate groups so everyone that wants to will have an opportunity to work and interact with the kids and families.
Our overall theme will be “Christmas in July” and we look forward to bringing some joy while sharing the love of God with these families and workers at the facility.
On Thursday (half day) we plan to be doing work at the Ronald McDonald House.This will mostly be mission work for their facility. There might be some access to the kids at the facility but it will be very limited if so.
Thursday evening we will stay at a hotel near DeGray Lake.
Friday will be a lake day. We will “camp” near a beach and swim area. We will rent two boats for the kids to enjoy the lake and tubing before heading back home to arrive late Friday night.
