19 May Jump Start 2016
Jump Start is Central’s annual community outreach event that gives away backpacks full of school supplies to the students or Wyomina Park Elementary. While that may sound like enough to most, we also provide lunch, community resources, bounce houses, pony rides, face-painting and more – making it an enjoyable day for the whole family. Yet, the best thing is, it’s FREE!
Location: Wyomina Park Elementary
When: July 30th
This year we are continuing in our partnership with Wymonia Park Elementary School. Wyomina Park has a growing population of low income families. To meet their needs and show them the love of Christ, Jump Start will be on their campus Saturday, June 30, and our goal is to provide 500 backpacks to the students of Wyomina Park Elementary.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
The backpacks have been donated. The only thing we ask of you is to donate toward the sets of school supplies. It takes $10 to fill a backpack, so a total of $5,000 needs to be raised to fill 500 backpacks. Please clearly designate donations for “Jump Start”. You can also contribute donations online through Pushpay. Make sure to change the giving type to “Jump Start”.
MANY Volunteers will be needed for this event, and there is a place for everyone. There is no greater reward than to volunteer and give back to our community and this is a great way to do that!
Online Registration for volunteers is now closed. There are still many areas to help out on Saturday, so if you didn’t pre-register to volunteer, you can still stop by Volunteer Check-in on Saturday morning to sign up.
Pray that God does exceedingly more through our donations, volunteers, and in the lives of the families impacted by Jumps Start.
