Children and adults of all ages came together during this year’s Make a Difference Day event.  Schools were beautified, bikes were repaired, yards were landscaped and crafts were made for charitable distribution.  In helping others, people were able to glorify the Lord!  It was a very good day, look for the next Make a Difference day on October 27, 2018.  Also, see below the link to this year’s video showcasing all the work that was done.

One of the amazing projects that went on this year for Make A Difference Day was a diaper drive  by Warm Springs Elementary School. They collected nearly 8000 diapers. Over 2000 of them went up to the evacuation area in Napa and the rest were delivered here and we have been handing out the diapers along with the amazing Mommy Care Kits they also made. Our needy moms were thrilled to be blessed by such generosity!

We are always looking for projects which require volunteers to help seniors with their yard work.  This is one example – the volunteers from St. Paul United Methodist trimmed the client’s hedges and now they look great!  We have plenty of clients for more churches to help – let us know if you want to participate!
