All School News:
For two decades, the Elementary Campus has been serving up kindness by collecting items for the Crisis Pregnancy Centre. This local organization helps provide non-judgmental, compassionate support and information for women struggling with an unplanned pregnancy. Whether it is housing, counselling or basic baby items, new mothers-to-be feel Christ’s love in a tangible way.
Accordingly, each classroom has received a black and white box to collect new items that a baby/family could benefit from. As they show kindness through their gifts, their box will be unwrapped to reveal the bright colour underneath as they live out colouring our world.
On Dec 13th, the last school day before Christmas break, students will bring down their now colourful boxes during chapel to see the mountain of kindness they have given our world, and pray for the Crisis Pregnancy Centre.
Below are practical examples of the kindness we can give other families as recommended by the Crisis Pregnancy Centre:
FOR CHILDREN AGE 0-3:
#4 & 5 diapers (much needed)
Pull ups (much needed)
Wet wipes (much needed)
Formula (much needed for 2 clients in particular)
Socks for age 1-3
Mittens for age 1-3
Toques for age 0-3
Clothing size winter/warmer clothing size 6 months – 3 years for both male and female; the need is greater for bigger sizes.
Baby products are welcome, however, the Centre does not give out talcum powder to families anymore.
The Centre supports:
7 children under age 1 (2 boys, 5 girls)
3 children age 1-2 (1 boy, 2 girls)
2 children age 2-3 (both girls)
1 – 3 yr old boy
1 – 3 yr old girl
Dolls, toy trucks, board books, building blocks, plush toys
*Toys which require batteries can be a hardship to replace for some families.
We also like to give a gift to moms and dads. A few suggestions would be:
Women’s Scarves or blanket scarves
Socks (male and female)
Body soap (men’s and women’s scents)
Gift cards (grocery stores, Walmart, and even for coffee shops or healthier fast food like subway)
Lip balm, hand cream
