Rooted—High School Youth Ministry
Rooted, is a service based group for High School students who are interested in bringing Christ into the community through various volunteer opportunities. This year we are partnering with various organizations around town, with the focus of helping our local community.
We have 2 big service project opportunities coming up that we would love your help with!
Standish Humane Society - Standish Humane Society in Duxbury has asked for our help cleaning up their property from the storms last week. We will be meeting there on Veterans Day, Thu, Nov 11 at 10:00am. Many hands make for light work, so the more the merrier! I will have gloves and some yard work equipment, but if you could bring rakes or gloves, that would be appreciated!
Operation Christmas Child - This year we are participating in Operation Christmas Child. Through Operation Christmas we will be packing shoe boxes full of toys, hygiene items and school supplies to send to children throughout the world in areas affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine and disease for Christmas.
There are 2 ways to help with this project -
- Way #1 would be purchasing items to donate and bringing them to class on Sun, Nov 14, Mass the next 2 weekends or with you when you assemble the boxes on the 21st.
- Way # 2 would be helping to assemble and pack the boxes on Sun, Nov 21 from 2:00-4:00pm.
If you are interested in helping support this project, you can find lists of suggested items here.
