Outreach Board

posted on July 27

The Outreach Board is reaching out this summer with site visits to organizations we support in the larger community. On July 13, Joyce Ward, Colleen Olson and I visited the summer school site sponsored by the Christian Activities Council which we support with $1,000 annually. This year they have introduced the Freedom School concept, developed by the Children’s Defense Fund with an emphasis on reading and enrichment. It was exciting and inspirational to see the engagement of the kids and staff through music, movement, drumming and response. The next visit will be to Hands on Hartford on July 27 to hear about its activities. Windsor Cares is a community group who are using our kitchen on Wednesdays to make sandwiches for the homeless in Hartford; a member of Outreach Board is assisting them each week. In addition we have active links to seven other programs, some of which were begun by the Board and are now independent, such as Book Buddies, Refugee Resettlement, Shelter Meals and Covenant to Care. We are looking forward to Outreach Sunday on September 25, so be on the lookout for the Neighbors in Need offering envelopes coming in early September. Marilyn Boehm, for the Board of Christian Outreach
