Week of Hope is packed with practical acts of love and service. Students build meaningful connections as they serve people through our strong partnerships with local ministries and nonprofit organizations. They'll learn Christ-like empathy and compassion for others as they meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of disadvantaged children, youth, and adults.
As we enter into the lives of others and build relationships with the people of Loveland, you'll experience God working through them at projects such as:
~Helping with maintenance projects including trimming, storage shed clean-out/organization and picnic area restoration at an affordable housing organization. There may be opportunity to interact with and work alongside low income families living there, and plan and implement a fun activity for the kids of the complex.
~Assisting several Adult Day Programs with a variety of projects to keep them running efficiently, as well as interacting with clients during their activity time!
~Rotating through different food pantry centers, preparing and serving hot meals to community members, sorting donations, and helping people choose food and clothing.
~Working at a horse therapy farm! Participants will work in one of four areas; be prepared to work outdoors and to work alongside their special need clients. An open mind and willingness to talk and share with them will make this a very memorable experience!
~Sort and box items that are sent out internationally--participants get to be the hands and feet of Jesus for an organization that helps fight poverty through sustainable, life changing programs.
~Assisting at a non-profit facility that helps homeless families. Participants will also be making blessing bags for the homeless and delivering them.
~Work one-on-one with kids with mental disabilities as their buddy for fun activities.
