Faith Lutheran School's Extra Mile Program
As a way of proclaiming Christ in our community, Faith Lutheran School is committing to help 1 family per month with various needs. Here are the basics:
We will ask for recommendation requests for families that are in need from the Church and School community and families. Recommendations would be placed by the 15th of the month prior. Some examples may include:
1. Financial support
2. Support during Military deployment
3. Support after loss of a job
4. Support for extra needs during a medical emergency or surgery
5. Elderly support
Each recommendation would need to have specific reason for need along with a contact person for questions and follow –up. Administration will make a selection from recommendations.
Some things that we may provide help with are:
2. Clothing donations
3. Gift cards for groceries
4. Basic yard work
5. Holiday decorating
6. Basic house cleaning
Regular Thursday Chapel offerings will go towards needs. We could also consider selling pre-made meals that families could purchase. Profits would go towards the meals for the family in need.
We would share info with Church families as well.
Each month we would pick a day that older students could use to take a field trip to do any basic yard work, decorating, or cleaning the family would need. When possible, life skills class will make meals once a month.
Younger students may help with large card making and possible singing to an ill family member etc.
