Church of the Incarnation parishioners join together each year in the tradition of reaching out into the community through a one day large-scale group volunteer activity. Projects include painting, landscaping, and remodeling at a community school or other non-profit organization. This is a wonderful opportunity for the whole family to get involved in helping others and making a difference in our community.
RECAP: JOHN F. KENNEDY LEARNING CENTER
By God’s mercy and the selfless devotion of so many parishioners, Church of the Incarnation’s Day of Service 2013 was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who joined the effort to show Christ’s love to the students and faculty at the John F. Kennedy Learning Center.
President Kennedy called his listeners to, “Ask what you can do.” As a Parish, we answered his call with vigor:
- Assembling 550 teacher appreciation gifts.
- Creating 120 gift packages for Cathedral Gardens residents.
- Building 150 care packages for homeless children.
- Installing a community garden.
- Painting doorframes, offices, classrooms, and a hallway mural.
- Landscaping front and back of the Learning Center.
- Decorating four teacher lounges and workrooms.
- Feeding over 350 volunteers.
- Building bleachers.
- Painting the playground.
Our most heartfelt thanks to the Day of Service Champions, Jeff Jacobie, Megan Rain, and Gary Brown, whose efforts and devotion made this day possible.
