We thank God for the project he has brought our way, and are happy to share with you this year’s Giving Project! Our MAK Family will have an opportunity to bless our neighbors in the Jia Cheng community with Winter Care Packages. Due to their poor living conditions and financial strain, many of them do not have basic necessities for the coming winter weather. Our teachers have been working closely with a social worker from this area, visiting low-income, high needs seniors in Jia Cheng community. Each class, K-12, will “Sponsor a Senior” in need and put together a Care Package for the senior based on their wish list. Students will also have a chance to think of other ways they can bless the seniors as we grow in understanding what a “lifestyle of service” is. The Giving Project has already begun, and we hope to complete the packages before Christmas break. In the future, we hope to continue partnering with our local community workers to meet the ongoing needs of these seniors and others as needs arise. Stay tuned for more details in the future!
