Kind Acts: The $5 Project

Today we used the $5 we were given to help a school teacher buy supplies for her classroom. She had an armload of notebooks for her students in Office Max and we gave her the money to help cover a few of those. Thanks for this fantastic idea, 

                                                                ~ The House Family 

On June 10, twenty volunteers received an envelope containing a $5 bill. The volunteers were instructed to use the $5 to do something kind: help someone in need, brighten someone's day, etc. Volunteers were then asked to share their story. We invite others to join us in the $5 Project. 
The YARD SALE is coming on September 8! Plan ahead.

  

The annual GIANT St. Paul's yard sale is scheduled for Saturday September 8. Volunteers will be needed for sorting and set-up the week before (Monday through Friday night), all day Saturday, including clean up folks later that afternoon and evening.
