PRESCHOOL VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY

There is nothing more precious than holding an infant as they smile and coo at you, or rock them as they sleep. Our new infant room is growing very quickly and we are looking for some very valuable volunteers to hold and rock our smallest little students. If you like holding babies and rocking them, then we have an opportunity for you! If you have an extra hour to spare and want to use your time serving in a very important ministry, please contact Angie Lopez at 284-2430 to receive more information.

 

EPIPHANY ACTION TEAM UPDATE

“Serving Christ with our community through service and relationships.”

We have a worthwhile opportunity to put Hazelwood’s new mission statement into action! North View Elementary school is striving to raise its F accountability grade, and the principal there is thrilled to have Hazelwood members listen to a child practice read, help a kiddo with double-digit addition, or be the occasional “extra adult” in a classroom. There are opportunities during the school day, after school, and during various evening events. If you are not able to visit the school, the principal says teachers always need help getting props and manipulatives ready, a task that can be done at home.

Several of you have already expressed interest. Thank you! Please return the pink Volunteer Information Form to me soon. Anyone helping with school children needs to fill out this form for a background check. There is no expense involved to you or to Hazelwood.

Please let me know if you want to be part of this North View partnership, and I will be glad to get you started.

NOTES OF APPRECIATION

“Dear Hazelwood Christian Church,

On behalf of the residents of the Whitely Community, volunteers, and our board members, I would like to thank you for your 2018 donation of $250 to the Whitely Community Council.

Your gift will help continue the fight against food insecurities that are a daily struggle for many of our residents. The distribution of nutritious food is a vital and important part of what we do to fight hunger, but it is not the only tool we use. Through education, communication, and partnerships with other like-minded organizations, we have created unique relationships that will continue the fight against poverty and the effects it has on communities.

We can not thank you enough for your generosity, but we can guarantee that your donation will be used in the most responsible way, bringing relief to families and creating pathways to sustainability.

Sincerely,” ~Ken Hudson, Executive Director, Whitely Community Council

“Dear friends,

Thank you for your participation in Muncie Mission’s 15th annual Walk-A-Mile in My Shoes fundraiser. We are thankful for this event which raises the awareness of the plight of the homeless and provides funding for the Mission to be able to minister in a positive and loving way. Thank you for your help in making it a tremendous success. When YOU GIVE….WE GIVE. Thank you so much.

Sincerely,” ~Frank Baldwin, Executive Director, Muncie Mission
