Servants' 600+ active volunteers serve by using their skills, gifts and experiences in providing home repairs and maintenance services for low-income older adult and disabled homeowners through Home Helps; delivering help to disaster victims and recovery efforts through U.S. Disaster Recovery; by teaching extreme poverty-ridden families and communities in Guatemala to achieve a sustainable lifestyle through Serving at-Risk Families; and by planning and coordinating short-term mission trips across the U.S. and around the world.
Serving at-Risk Families (SARF) raises money to send all of the children from each family in the program to school and provides their tuition, uniform, books, supplies, shoes, and backpack. By giving them a quality education, the opportunities for employment upon graduation increases dramatically.
This year’s Backpack Campaign needs to raise $15,000 for tuition, uniforms, shoes, school supplies and backpacks.
Gather your classmates, your school clubs, your friends and family and when you purchase a backpack for school, buy a second one to send to Guatemala. When you raise money this summer with jobs, yard sales, and lemonade stands, give 10% toward the education of our Guatemalan SARF children. When you have VBS at your church, consider raising money for education. Tell your Youth Leader to schedule a 24-Hours in Poverty event to help fund education. Let us know your ideas to raise $15,000!
