#ThankfulThursday: November ’22 Service Project

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.

Tuesday. A good day to do a good deed.

Hello Church Friends, 

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

Amazon Wish List: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/MZJS0WWSUI1?ref_=wl_share

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

“Books for Bethany House” Yields Books for Kids

Our latest outreach project, Books for Bethany House yielded a donation of 45 books to Bethany House Services, a family shelter in Cincinnati, OH. Through book purchases and monetary donations, Blue Manatee Literacy Project and Bookstore will supply books that will be given to children experiencing homelessness. Their mission to

(partner) with local schools, educators, volunteers and staff, (donate) books help build classroom and home libraries, with books in varying reading levels and written by own-voices authors and

to spread the love of reading to all children across Cincinnati—in the hopes that we will watch them grow and flourish, and continue to spread that love of reading throughout their life.

This project took the place of this year’s annual Toy Swap which was not held due to Covid-19.

Bethany House
Bethany House Services empowers homeless and at-risk families with the solutions to achieve housing stability and long-term self-sufficiency. Their vision is to live in a community where all families have a place to call home and no one spends a night without shelter. Currently, Bethany House services 160-170 people every night, 75% of those being children. Families come to Bethany House from many different paths. No matter the twists and turns life has thrown at them, they come to Bethany House seeking the same thing, a place to find rest and restoration. That’s what we provide: care and comfort, community and support, encouragement and inspiration, each leading them one step closer to home.
