GIVING, SHARING AND HELPING OTHERS

Clubbers have the opportunity to practice the Christian principles of giving, sharing and helping others by contributing throughout the year to an ongoing missions offering. Specific items will be collected each month. (See schedule on front) In November, we will host a family event to pack items collected into shoeboxes as part of Operation Christmas Child. For more information about Operation Christmas Child visit: www.samaritanspurse.org/occ

In May, Sparks and T&T clubbers will use shares (AWANA bucks) earned and awarded throughout the year to “purchase” animals for communities and families in need through Samaritan’s Purse. For more information, visit: https://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/animals-and-agriculture/
