Lunches for Livermore
Prepare, sack lunches/blessing bags we will then deliver to homeless along Arroyo, staying to visit as needed.
Random Acts of Kindness: Great project as a family, a group of families/friends or be connected with other participants the morning of N2N
Random Acts of Kindness is a simple way for people of all ages in our church to step out and connect with members of our Livermore and church community. On N2N Sunday people will engage in doing one [or more!] simple activities intended to brighten people’s day and be a tangible extension of God’s love. Activities such as: delivering donuts or baked goods to local police/fire stations, the veteran’s hospital or skilled nursing facility staff [some of you will choose to make the baked goods prior to delivering them!]; dropping in on homebound church members to visit/say hello, deliver flowers or see if they have any chores they could use help with. The intention and hope is to form meaningful connections we can continue throughout year.
Rise Against Hunger: Great for all ages and abilities
Pour and bag multiple nutritious ingredients from bulk into quart-sized bags to be distributed internationally to the needy, by the Rise Against Hunger organization.
Connect with residents who need light household help to improve their quality of life. Cleaning, mowing, light repairs and conversation can bring joy and make all the difference!
Share the Dream with Ice Cream
Outreach to the community by giving away ice cream cones to the general public. We will set up a little stand, create signs and labels and then hand out free ice cream around 11:00
Sustain Open Heart Kitchen at Vineyard Christian Fellowship
VCF is a small church with a big heart. Help us make their site safe and supportive for the homeless and hungry they serve. Light maintenance and cleaning and repairs will help this church continue to be a refuge for our local homeless and hungry.
