Love in Action

We’re going to put our money where our mouth is.

This Labor Day weekend, we’re donating close to $10,000 worth of school supplies to neighborhood teachers and classrooms. Our office is filling up with notebooks, crayons, pencils, disinfectant wipes, etc. We love our community and very much appreciate the important work our educators do, serving our children and shaping the next generation. And “let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth” (1 John 3:18).

You can be a part of this great day! We have literally thousands of items to sort and pack into bags for 130 teachers. Bring a friend and help us. Any teachers who come that Sunday will leave with a bag for their own classroom.

Here’s the plan:

Sunday, 9/2: We’ll meet at 11:00am for a very short service (about 1/2 hr) at 4862 Broadway (map).* We’ll pray for teachers and give them supplies, so invite any teachers you know along! Then we’ll all work together to sort and pack the supplies.

* This activity is not sponsored or endorsed by the New York City Department of Education or the City of New York.

Monday, 9/3: Have fun at our Labor Day Picnic!

Tuesday, 9/4: We’ll gather in the morning to load up vans and deliver the supplies to teachers during their first in-service day of this school year. Anyone who’s available is welcome to come help (contact us).

To make a contribution towards the cost of these supplies, see information about how to give to Everyday Church here: Give.
