Thank you to all the families who came and created Care Packs for the homeless at our Family Outreach Event on Saturday.
It was wonderful to see the creativity and love that went into making cards that were included in all of the Care Packs. The group put together over 400 Care Packs! Half are going to the Warming Shelters, with the other half sent home with these awesome families to hand out to people in need. Way to go, Westside Families!
Our Donation Drive this week for cold weather gear also was a huge success! All supplies collected will be donated to local Warming Shelters serving our community this winter.
Thank you, Westsiders, for your love, care, and generosity to our community!
Josh Cordell, our Westside Family Pastor, reported the following,
“We hosted a beautiful event at Westside Church on Saturday. We had around 30 families come put together care packages for the homeless in our area. Included in the package was a cute card, colored on one side with a handwritten note or encouraging word on the other side.
A seven-year old told me, “It feels good to help people.” Isn’t that the truth!
One family told me that their six-year old, on a recently cold day, had pointed out how she felt bad for homeless people having to deal with the weather. That same day they received the email about this event.”
It was so good to see families serving together. One of the best things was a family with three teenagers all sitting together coloring their cards… and loving it!
Stay tuned for more impacting Family events to come!
