Helping Hands Update

Dear Parents,

 

We are half way through our school wide fundraiser. The kids have all been blessed with fun prizes, like In n Out  meals on Monday, free dress passes, shopping at the Friday Fun Store and  more! We currently have 125 families signed up and over $23,000 raised to date! Praise the Lord! We are praying for a goal of $80,000 by September 24th and in order to reach this goal we every families help!

 

  1. PRAY – Lift up our fundraiser in prayer, we are believing God not only to reach but to exceed our goal, for continued participation and excitement from our entire school body and for the Lord to surround us with generous hearts that want to give to raising the next generation in His name.
  2. START – If you haven’t signed up for a page yet go to cccslions.org  now and start your page. Scroll to the bottom and click on the Helping Hands logo.
  3. GIVE  – If you have started your page but do not have any donations – make a sacrifice and donate $25 to start off your fundraiser, then ask 4 – 6 family members or friends to do the same.
  4. CHALLENGE – Send a personal email out with your link challenging your friends and family to skip a coffee or  not eat out  this weekend and donate to your family page instead, remind them that $1 out of every $10 will go to Three Square to help fight hunger in our community
  5. ENCOURAGE – Encourage your children to come up with some creative ways to ask for donations.

 

We have over 350 families at our school and we need everyone’s participation to reach our goal. Remember this fundraiser will help keep our tuition low and close the gap between what it costs to educate each child and what we pay.  Not only will it help our school, but we are also helping our community fight hunger through Three Square.

 

Even if you don’t think you can reach the goal, I encourage you to still start your page, donate a little and see what doors God can open! Every little bit counts! The more families we have participating, the closer we will be to exceeding our goal.  Our heart is that all families come together and try their best to do their part in making this year’s Helping Hands a success!!

 

If anyone needs help we will be meeting in the elementary computer lab – room 123 on Friday at 3:15. We can assist you with setting up your page, linking it to social media, and sending out emails.

 

2 Corinthians 8:11-12

Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it, according to your means.

For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what one does not have.

 

In His service,

Helping Hands Fundraising Team
