Last Call for STEP Toys

Each year STEP collects donations of new, unwrapped, children's gifts with the original purchase price intact. These donations are then marked to half price or less and made available to the parents of children living in Gilpin Court. The Christmas store offers parents the dignity of making a sacrifice of love for their children at an affordable price. Suggested items include: skateboards, stuffed animals, arts and crafts, sports equipment (like basketballs), building blocks, electronics, toy cars/trucks, bikes, African-American dolls, educational toys and gift cards to fast food restaurants (McDonalds, Burger King, Chick-Fil-A). Containers are at the church to collect donations and this Sunday, December 2, is the last Sunday we’re collecting!

Johnson Elementary Partnership

Two opportunities this week to connect with Johnson Elementary:

  1. There will be volunteer training this Wednesday, November 28, 11:45am at the school. This training is mandatory for anyone interested in working with students in a tutoring capacity. (If you can’t make it this time, but are interested in volunteering with students, there will me more opportunities down the road.)

  2. We are providing breakfast for the teachers this Friday, November 30. If you are able to help, either by providing food beforehand or by showing up on Friday morning to help set up (or both!), please connect with Cherilyn Christie asap.

Last call for Thanksgiving with the Wibberlys

You and your family are invited (the Wibberlys would LOVE to have you) join us for Thanksgiving Dinner if you don't have plans yet or simply don't want to cook.  We usually sign up to host a couple of international students/families from VCU or U of R, though we haven't heard anything about it this year yet for some reason.  Hoping that may still happen.  Either way, festivities (meaning appetizers) begin at 2 PM, dinner at 3 PM....and you are invited to just hang out after the food coma for games and to pick at leftovers  Please RSVP to Kathy or Leo by Friday November 16 (sooner is better) at katwibb@yahoo.com or text 434.906.4960.  Your admission ticket is a donation to the STEP Christmas store - either bring it with you on Thanksgiving Day or drop it in the container at church (we trust you!)
