Mission Stay is Back
Join us at 8am at the Lemont Police Dept parking lot on August 14, and help us help some in our community with a yard clean-up.
We mow, rake, trim bushes and trees, pull weeds, complete small home repairs, and leave the yard for the better, and a friend very happy that we offered our hands and feet for a day.
This is our 9th year committing ourselves to be compassion in action on a Saturday morning for some of our seniors and those unable to afford or complete the yard work needed.
Bring your favorite yard tools to use, gloves, water, and your smile! It won't feel like work when you hang out with the Mission Stay Saturday team!
This is the third of three Mission Stay Saturdays this year. For this weekend we will need a Yard work team AND a care box team. We are seeking donations of baked goods & “pick me up notes”- we’ll be making and delivering care bags/boxes for all that we visited for all of this year's Mission Stay Saturdays, all Fire and Police Stations, and some more friends who could use our act of compassion.
Drop off baked goods to the Lemont Police Dept. at 8am on Saturday or drop them off in the Blue Trailblazer at 721 Hickory Street. Drop off notes (this can be a community service project- hours will be credited) to bins at Starbucks, Lemont Police Dept., or the Blue Trailblazer.
If you would like to assist with creating and delivering the care boxes/bags, or if you would like to go out with us as we work in a few yards here in our community who need our hands and feet- arrive at the Lemont Police Dept at 8am on Sat. Aug. 14th.
Know a senior or friend in need of this gift of hands and feet? Let me know and we'll work them in our schedule!
Let us Learn Together
We are creaing a resource of thoughts, lessons, learned, and advice for future young friends from the present. We have prepared a Google Doc and ask you to share it with all the young people you can. This is an anonymous format; no names or emails are collected. We will share the publication when it is completed. We truly feel it will capture what our young people felt as they moved from "normal" to anything but normal over the past year. Please encourage your child(ren) to participate. We know school staff, church youth leaders, and we are all looking forward to learning from the introspective offerings from our young friends.
