MAKE A DIFFERENCE OPPORTUNITIES
Operation Make a Difference 2022
During 2022, Beautiful Savior will be Making a Difference
for people in need of encouragement and support.
Good in the 'Hood Holiday Collection
Starting Monday, November 14, Beautiful Savior will collect gift cards from Target or Walmart
to bless children in need this Christmas season with mission partner Good in the 'Hood.
If you'd like to help, please purchase two $25 gift cards per child and put them
in the collection box in the Gathering Space. Last year, Beautiful Savior blessed 188 children. Let's join together and bless 200 children this year! Watch the video below to get much more information about how the program works to help families.
Good in the 'Hood Ongoing Food Collection
Beautiful Savior will host an ongoing food drive through the summer months
for Good in the ‘Hood, which provides food to those in need at more than 30 sites
in the Twin Cities metro area. The rising cost of housing, food, gas, utilities
and essentials - at an inflation rate of 8.2% - is affecting families in need even more
because these families were already struggling to make ends meet.
Please bring your donations to the Gathering Space.
During April and May, the people of Beautiful Savior donated 187 pairs of shoes
for Good in the 'Hood's Shoe Away Hunger program and 1,337 pairs of socks for Good in the 'Hood's SoleCare for Souls program. In early June, a group sorted another 1,500 pairs of shoes, which will be sold at affordable prices to fund meals for more than 1,100 people for a week. More information about the programs is available at goodinthehood.org.
In March, Beautiful Savior supported Good in the 'Hood during MN Food Share month.
There are many volunteer opportunities and more information is available at goodinthehood.org or by emailing Pastor Joe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are Pastor Joe and Good in the 'Hood's Shawn Morrison with more information:
"Every Meal" Zachary Lane
“Every Meal” Is a Christian organization that helps children on free and reduced lunches
have food on the weekend. Every Thursday during the school year, the people of Beautiful Savior will go to Zachary Lane Elementary and leave prepackaged meals in assigned school bags
to ensure food security until they return to school the next week.
This is about a one-hour commitment around 11 a.m. every Thursday during the school year.
