Giving Tuesday
 
Giving Tuesday Volunteers - Cans & Bottles

Giving Tuesday 2022 ~ This event started off with a great crew of 33 volunteers that came in Monday Night (Giving Tuesday Eve) - with one group helping to receive, sort, count and bag cans & bottles for redemption, which sponsors our feeding outreaches!


Giving Tuesday Volunteers - Warehouse



Another group helped with end-of-the-year inventory and reorganization of the warehouse




Giving Tuesday Volunteers - Donation Center


And, yet another group over at the Donation Center finished sorting and packing donations; as well as, end-of-the-year inventory!




 

THEN, on to the DAY of Giving Tuesday - we had a team of 27 volunteers who took a trip to the Adult & Teen Challenge - CT -- We were so thankful that God blessed us with a clear day, as our tasks had most of our team working outside...

Giving Tuesday Volunteers - Yardwork



The yardwork team had lots to do,

including clearing away newly fallen trees.




Giving Tuesday Volunteers - Painting



The painting crew had over 200 pieces of trim

to tackle and they did it with ease!




Giving Tuesday Volunteers - Construction


The construction team stepped in to tackle some important piece-work and got a great start on prepping some of the cabins for new flooring & outdoor decking.



Giving Tuesday Volunteers - Clean Out


The cleanout team worked diligently to clear out 5 more cabins, cleaning and staging some of the items for future use.



 

It was a wonderful two days filled with great fellowship, lots of laughter and the greatest part was everyone walked away knowing that together, we had made a difference!


ON TOP OF ALL THAT... these volunteers went to town getting their volunteer hours sponsored and collectively raised a total of $5,061.67 for the Adult & Teen Challenge - CT's chapel renovation project, which is set to begin this coming spring!


A HUGE THANK YOU TO EACH VOLUNTEER & EVERY GIVER FOR YOUR COLLECTIVE EFFORTS!!!
