School is out from December 21 to January 8, so with that knowledge we have decided to take a winter mission Trip to the New Orleans area to help them recover from Hurricanes Katrina and Isaac. We will be partnering with Camp Restore to do a wide range of missions from Heavy Construction, to working with youth centers and retirement homes. They have partnerships at more than 80 agencies in the New Orleans area from which to find us work. To find out more about Camp Restore visit www.camprestore.org
We will meet at the church on Wednesday January 2nd at 10:00am to board the rental vans for the journey to New Orleans. We will have some time to explore New Orleans to sample the cuisine of the area. This should be a great opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ in a place that really needs our help.
The cost of this trip is $200 and will be due in no later than December 15, 2012 as we have money that we need to get to our partners in advance. This trip is open to all youth currently in our youth program through our elders who reside in College. Let me know if you have questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
