Youth Group Runs Outreach Programs

Share And Inspire 🙂

“This is my youth group. We are raising money for several reasons. We do plan activities that sometimes cost money to attend but most of all, our youth group holds at least four different outreach projects a year. This day we were downtown Indianapolis handing out care packages to the homeless. Every year we purchase hats, gloves, scarves, blankets, socks, toothbrushes and toothpaste, food and snacks water juice etc and we go downtown and walk around to hand out these bags. Other outreach things we do are cleaning up our church and purchasing mulch and materials to clean windows and beautify the church. During Christmas, we pick a nursing home or retirement home and we hang out with the elderly for hours. We play games and we buy prizes for them to get when they win.  All of this requires money so we do fundraising a couple times a year to be able to keep this activity up.”
