Pre-School Maintenance/Repair Group

We love our pre-school! LCOP Preschool is a mission of the Little Church. This indoor project to update and repair some storage shelves for the teachers and children includes sanding, painting, and clean-up. Our Boomer Group Fix-It Group is “all in” and we could use some extra hands.

Project Coordinator: Gretchen Alden

Sewing Group:
When children are taken from their homes due to abuse, they sometimes only have the clothes on their back. This group will sew pajama bags for the Comfy Closet, a service of Mary Bridge Children’s Advocacy Center, which can be filled with necessities, comfort items, and hygiene items. Participants should bring their own sewing machine. Click here for more information on how to donate needed items.

Project Coordinator: Alice Amblad and Marilyn Sexton

Fellowship Group

Participating in these projects not only requires fuel (as in food), but also benefits from a time to sit back, take it all in, and process the experience. This part of Make a Difference Day is invaluable to the server and missionary inside each of us. The fellowship group spends the morning setting the tables and preparing a meal to share, and make this possible.

Days for Girls-Moldova Project

Please BRING SCISSORS for cutting cotton fabric!!!!
This group will be cutting simple shapes that have been traced onto cotton fabric as part of the process of preparing sanitary products for Moldova girls. These products are very expensive in Moldova and difficult to obtain (limiting girls’ ability to attend school).
