Mission team busy volunteering services

November 08, 2006

The Grace Academy Missions Team has been established to reach out to the community and help those in need, all in the name of Christ Jesus.

During the month of October, the missions team collected items for the REACH cold-weather shelter. More than 300 items were collected to benefit the homeless.

On Oct. 7, the missions team made scarecrows to be sold at the Harvest Hoedown at Byron Memorial Park in Williamsport. All proceeds went to help the Williamsport Food Bank.

On Oct. 11, the missions team volunteered for The United Way "Day of Caring" and spent the morning at the REACH cold-weather shelter. The team disinfected the kitchen, bathrooms, chairs, supply boxes, floors and walls. They carried out desks, delivered books to the library, sorted clothes, organized cabinets, folded sheets, washed windows, weeded, cleaned light fixtures and prepared the shelter for the homeless.

On Oct. 19, the missions team volunteered for the Share-a-thon at WCRH. The team answered phones, took pledges and did paperwork.

On Oct. 21, the missions team participated in the Step-n-Strike Breast Cancer walk at Hagerstown Community College. The team walked five miles to honor their teachers and family members who have had cancer.

If you know of a nonprofit organization that could use the missions team to help on a Saturday morning, call Grace Academy and let someone know of your need.
