Today, we celebrate another difference that make us human. Why would we want to deny someone who they are? Today is Trans Day of Visibility. Interested in learning more about Trans Folx? Want to get involved in advocacy for equal rights for the Trans Community?
Lockland High School is doing a popcorn fundraiser to raise money for their students to be able to afford, and attend a great Prom. One of our members, Shannon Fischer is a teacher at Lockland, and this year’s Prom Chair!
This fundraiser lasts a limited time 2/21-2/25, so order your delicious popcorn flavors now! You can have them shipped anywhere in the US, or to US Military Personnel in the Americas, Europe or the Pacific!
Click and Share this LINK for the kids to have a poppin’ good time!
Currently Lockland prom ticket prices are $25 a “pop” (a good price considering most local school proms are $60+ a student.) However, some kids are still not able to afford tickets at this rate. The more money that is raised, the lower tickets can become.
Remember our service project from November to Glendale Elementary School? We received a very thoughtful thank you letter from the principal of the school that was received by the Glendale New Church who forwarded it on to us. Your generosity was appreciated.
Thanks to all of our members who were able to contribute time and money to help make the Christmas of a family of three (a mother and two daughters) a little merrier. Items purchased with your funds included a mountain bike, a Samsung tablet, a set of dishes, pots and pans, curling iron, clothes, makeup, jewelry, and toys.
We hope all of the folks that work and make their temporary home at Bethany House have a very, Merry Christmas!
I am passing along information about my teacher team, grades 7-9, for items we could use throughout the school year.
Almost 99% of our students live in poverty and as a school (Lockland) we don’t have a lot of money for additional resources and supplies.
These items are supplies for the classroom as well as items that can be used for our PBISrewards. (positive-behavior intervention system). Throughout the school year we will be updating the last so feel free to check back in and support.
Log in through your Amazon Smile account to benefit NCOM, as well. If using the amazon app on your phone, make sure smile is turned on to donate. Go to the menu bar (three horizontal lines) >Gifting, Registry & Charity>AmazonSmile> Mobile App Generating Donations ON
Feel free to share the Shannon Fischer wishlist on facebook and with others around you. If you are not sure what to get, an amazon gift card is also helpful. Thank you so much for the support. It is greatly appreciated and needed
This was our church’s first year “adopt(ing) a family” from Bethany House Services to provide gifts and needed items. Thanks to all who were able to participate, purchase, wrap and label gifts, and transport them, and to the kids from church posing for pictures in the warehouse receiving area.
Items purchased included silverware, shoes, gift cards, clothes and toys to bring smiles to two little ones and their mom; a family experiencing homelessness. We hope they have a Merry Christmas and feel the love we wrapped into each present.
You know that feeling when you are into a book and nothing else matters in the world. Well, you can help give a child that same care-free feeling when you buy a book from Blue Manatee Literacy Project.
Don’t have time to pick out a book? $12 buys one book and Blue Manatee will pick it out for you. Finding ways to be useful can be tricky some days. This is one idea where you can combine love with wisdom.
During the pandemic, it has been easy to see the need all around us. We at the New Church Of Montgomery have been fortunate enough to be able to take some of the opportunities to help that are in our community.
Bethany House Services, for whom we have done our ToySwap, the Something Wonderful art show, and brunches and dinners, continues to have the need of feeding unhoused families in the Cincinnati area.
Please bring any personal care items you wish to donate to the vestibule of Hopewell Junior School, by Friday, March 12, 2021, at 2:00 pm. The address is 8200 Cox Road, West Chester, OH 45069. These items are being collected by the HJS PTSO organization as part of their Community Service Fair week and will be given to Reach Out Lakota, a local organization which addresses poverty in the West Chester, OH, area of the Lakota School District.
Examples include: Toilet Paper/Tissues, Toothbrushes/Toothpaste, Bar Soap, Deodorant, Shaving Cream/Razors, Sanitary Pads/Tampons, Infant Wipes, and Lotion. All-purpose cleaners, dish detergent, and paper towels are also accepted and appreciated.
