15 youth and 6 adults came to Sugarland Elementary school to kick off the new year. They mulched, weeded and planted flowerbeds. This is one small way we serve our community. We encourage you to keep all teachers and students in your prayers as we start the new school year. We continue to enjoy this partnership with Sugarland Elementary School. If you are interested in serving with us let us know – Lisa@RiversideChurch.com.
BackPacks: Twice a month we meet at Sugarland Elementary to pack 250 backpacks with groceries for students to have over a weekend.
Ignite: Two Thursday’s a month young men in the community come together to play basketball and talk about God and life at Sugarland Elementary School.
Teacher Appreciation: Several times a year, Riverside hosts events like coffee and pastries, and lunch at the school for the teachers.
Feed a Student: Riverside collects financial donations to purchase food for Sugarland Elementary students to have over the winter school break. This helps students and families who rely on the school for breakfast and lunch during the school year. This year we will pack groceries on Sunday,
December 15th. Volunteers organize overall food purchasing and delivery of groceries. On line donations can be made at http://riversidechurch.com/en/online-giving/ .
Adopt a Family: Sugarland Elementary identifies families that could use
assistance during the Christmas season. They provide us with a wish list for each family. Riverside family and friends group together to shop, purchase and wrap gifts from the wish list.
