Every August we put together around 100 school backpacks filled with school supplies for Elementary, Middle School and High School Students, along with bibles in each bag. This is an opportunity for your church or group to minister to children going to school in the fall. We need backpacks, we need school supplies, we need groups who are willing to provide a meal for the families that come. We give it all away. It is free to all.
TRUNK OR TREAT
Each October the Friendship Center hosts a Halloween Party for both adults and children! We start the evening with a large group game, with a cool grand prize. There will be candy and games for the kids (would your group like to host a couple games?). Then we will have dinner provided by a local group (is that you?), sometimes we finish the night watching a kid-friendly movie at 6:30 pm. Popcorn is provided!!!!
For the best Halloween Costume, the winner receives a $30 gift card. Please dress appropriately for an Adult and Kid-friendly party!!!!
Each year, the Friendship Center adopts out for Christmas, children, teens and single mothers who attend one of our ministries. We ask each adoptive parent spend up to $150 total for all three Christmas gifts. Please respect our limits. Each participant asks for two items of clothing, one pair of shoes and one fun item. We ask that each gift be wrapped individually and with a nametag on them and please return all gifts by December 1st. If interested, please email Joe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One week summer camps are offered at the center for children ages Kindergarten through 8th grade. Summer camps run from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm, Monday through Thursday, with lunch provided. Kids participate in crafts, music, games and a bible story daily.
If your church would like to volunteer to lead a Camp week, please contact Joe at email@example.com.
