REGISTRATION HAS ENDED! THANK YOU TO THE MORE THAN 150 PEOPLE WHO HAVE VOLUNTEERED FOR THIS IMPORTANT DAY OF SERVICE! Join us on Saturday, November 11 for Mission: Possible, Knox Church's day of hands-on service to our mission partners in Cincinnati. We'll be spreading out across the city (and here at Knox) in projects suitable for a wide range of ages and skill levels.
Here are the projects for this year:
- THIRD CHURCH: Travel to the west side of Cincinnati and work at sprucing up Third Church and the nearby neighborhood. Ages 13+.
- CHILDHOOD FOOD SOLUTIONS: Pack food bags for Childhood Food Solutions to distribute to children with food insecurity around our city. Ages 7+. Location to be announced.
- REFUGEE FAMILY SUPPORT: We will support a Somali refugee family by creating flashcards and other tutoring materials, shopping with them for cold weather clothes, assembling storage units, collecting household items and size/gender-specific clothing for school-age children.
- QUILTING: Make 30 small blankets by cutting fleece fabric and tying knots around the edges. Blankets are for needy children and anyone in need of comfort. Ages 8+.
- KNOX FACILITIES: Stay at Knox and work on a number of different projects throughout the morning.
- BAGS OF LOVE: Our youngest volunteers (and others who don’t want to travel) can stay at Knox and (1) assemble kids’ activity bags for IHN, (2) make a craft and snack pack for Bethany House, (3) create care cards and placemats for the Knox Pastoral Care Ministry.
The day will work like this:
8:00am -- sign-in and opening ceremonies at Knox
8:30am-noon -- deploy to projects around town, and at Knox
12:30pm -- FREE lunch at Knox!
