First a quick update:
I am very happy and thankful to report that several people responded to my eblast of a couple weeks ago and have volunteered to help transport food from the South Glen Whole Foods to ROP on Mondays. This is a big blessing to our Food Bank program and all those who enjoy the perishable food (fruit and veggies, dairy and baked goods) provided by Whole Foods. Thank you, Lord!
Next an update and reminder:
In the same eblast, I also mentioned the need to raise $2,500 in order that we could provide a Back Pack and school supplies to the 490 students at nearby Crawfor Elementary School. As of today, we have raised $1,180 toward this goal. So, we are hoping to raise at least another $1,300, and it’s actually $1,800 after the school asked last week if we could add a pack of 4 dry erase markers for each student. Many thanks to those who have chosen to partner with us in meeting this very practical need of the families in our community. If you are feeling led to join them, I encourage you to do so.
Finally, another reminder:
For anyone interested in having some fun while getting some exercise and helping ROP raise some much needed funding, I just want to remind you that the June 30 deadline for early registration for Pedal 4A Purpose 2018 is coming up soon. On Sunday July 1st, registration fees will go from $30 to $35 per individual and $70 to $80 perfamily of three or more. So, if you want to save a few bucks by registering before prices go up or simply get more information about this year’s event, all you need to do is click on this link to the P4AP Website. The date of this year’s event is Saturday, September 22nd.
That’s it for now. Thanks for your partnership and consideration of these opportunities.
