We are so excited to have two amazing opportunities this summer to be a light in Jacksonville! These are fantastic opportunities for the whole family to get involved in showing the love of Jesus and meeting needs in our city.
How to get involved:
Give: We are asking for donations to purchase the backpacks and school supplies that we will be giving away at each of the events. $10 purchases one backpack. Our goal is to give 500 children backpacks full of everything they will need for school! Write Outreach when giving in an envelope or select OUTREACH- Points of Light to give online
Volunteer: We need lots of volunteers to make these events happen and we need YOU!
Stuff the Backpacks: Thursday, July 22nd at 7pm-8pm Join us as we pack all the backpacks with the purchased school supplies. We will also have supplies on hand to write an encouraging note or scripture to the student receiving the backpack. Bring the whole family!
Saturday July 24th
Community Outreach 10am – 1pm
We are partnering with City For The Nations and Beyond 90 to bless a local community. New Life will be bringing clothes from The Storehouse as well as a few hundred back to school backpacks for the children. We will come alongside the rest of the outreach activities which include a soccer clinic and lunch for the community.
Saturday August 7th
Storehouse Back to School Outreach 8:30am – 12:30pm
The Storehouse will be opened up for local kids to get free haircuts and a backpack for back to school. We need lots of volunteers to make this happen! If you are a hairstylist or barber who would like to volunteer your time please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 904-223-6000
