  • All School Giving Project - Uganda: Deadline is April 27

    School Giving Project - deadline is April 27!

    Mission Uganda is a non-pro t organization that is striving to bring humanitarian aid to the children of Uganda by providing basic school needs: uniforms, math kits and porridge. In Uganda, children may not

    go to school if they do not have the required uniform. They may not go on to the next educational level if they do not pass the proper tests, and they cannot pass the test without the math kit tools. Many are too poor to purchase the one porridge meal that they are served while at school.

    During the next two weeks our school is seeking to help this cause by collecting money for these needs. Students are developing ways to raise funds, that they may designate for one of the causes. In late May a team from Mission Uganda will go to distribute the items, but more importantly, all who receive the items will hear the story of salvation in their own dialect.

    We pray that our students will see this as a way to be servant workers who heal brokenness and bring joy to the children of Uganda. More information may be found on the following website: http://mission2uganda.org/

  • Giving Tree Project

    GIVING TREE: The Willing Workers Executive Committee is excited to announce our new “Giving Tree” project. 

    There will be a “tree” set up during our annual Grandparents Day and Spring music program with flower ornaments on the tree. 

    On the ornaments are wishes, from the teachers, for items they are requesting for their classrooms, the office, P.E., etc. Grandparents, parents and friends are encouraged to take the ornaments from the tree, purchase the requested item and return the item to the teacher with the name of the giver on the back of the flower ornament and attached to the item. There will be 2 different sizes of owers on the tree. The bigger flowers will have the items that the teachers have selected as priority items needed in their classrooms and the smaller flowers will be items that are less of a priority. Also, each classroom and department will have their own color of ornaments so if you choose to buy something for a certain classroom/department you will know which color you are looking for. There will be a color chart by the tree that will show the colors. We ask that the items that are purchased be delivered to the teachers/staff by the end of the school year. For those of you who wish to give a monetary cash donation there are envelopes hanging on the tree that you can take from the tree, put your donation in the envelope and put the envelope in the basket that will be by the tree. Let’s join together and bless our teachers!
