The A & P Center will be the site of a Fall Festival for all school-age children and youth on Saturday, October 25 from 10 – 1 pm. In addition to hosting Central’s youth, we’re hopeful that youth from our neighborhood and community will also attend. The event is still in the planning stage, however some ideas for different stations in the festival are:
Pumpkin decorating Carmel Apple Booth with different toppings
Popcorn Scarecrow stuffing contest Cake/Cookie Walk
Once the festival stations have been finalized, we’ll need volunteers to help run the stations. If you have ideas for a station or would like to volunteer to help, please contact Paula Hepp at 502-299-3064 or by email at: email@example.com. We’re hopeful this event will help introduce Central Christian Church to the youth in our community.
Santa’s elves (better known as CWF ladies and members and friends of Central Christian Church) have been busy all year collecting items for the S Ellen Jones Elementary School Christmas Gift Bag distribution. Each of the approximately 310 S Ellen Jones students will receive a gift bag before Winter Break. All the hats that are needed this year and many pairs of gloves were donated or purchased with donated funds at the end of the last winter season. School supplies were purchased during the Back to School Sales in July. Additional items such as a Scholastic paperback book, small toy or game, and food items will be purchased for the gift bags.
If you would like to contribute to this project, approximately 220 pairs of gloves are still needed. S Ellen Jones’s students are in grades kindergarten through fourth grade so consider the size of the children when making donations of gloves. Please purchase inexpensive gloves to donate. It is unfair for one child to receive gloves with Barbie or Spiderman etc. on them while other children receive plain ones.
Monetary donations are needed and will be used to help defray the cost of this project. Donations may be given to CWF Treasurer Allison Pruit or placed in a blue envelope (specifying it is for the CWF Gift Bag Project), in the offering tray. If writing a check, be sure to specify that it is for the CWF Gift Bag Project. Thanks for your help in making Christmas a little brighter for the students at S Ellen Jones, which has a poverty level of over 90%.
You may also drop off donations to the church office during office hours.
