ACTS OF KINDNESS FOR YOUR COMMUNITY
Happy Heart Window Hunt
All it takes to be a part of this Act of Kindness mission is paper, scissors, and tape to display hearts in windows and doors. Some people have written messages of hope with their heart displays as well as other shapes like flowers, or animals. Get your neighbors in on the fun!
Take a picture and share on our facebook page or email it to Kelly!
ELDER LETTER WRITING REQUEST
We are looking for Caring Superheroes to write letters or draw pictures for residents who are in quarantine at a local Elder Care Facility and letters for elders from Nativity as well. Be a Caring Superhero and send some cheer!
Contact our Minister of Social Justice & Advocacy- Kelly Sherman-Conroy firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know you would like to help. She will connect you with a name(s) of a person(s) you will write to for 4 weeks.
**NOTE**The CDC, World Health Organization, and Surgeon General have indicated that there is currently no evidence that COVID-19 is being spread through the mail.
You have two choices:
- Receiving a packet in the mail of stamped envelopes with instructions how to return your message of love and caring.
- Scanning and emailing your drawings and letters to be emailed to the facility to hand out. Instructions will be included.
Let Kelly know how many names you would like to have to write to. We have a lot of people that can use some cheer and will be adding more names.
Today you are going to do “CRAYON PRAYERS.”
Gather crayons, markers or colored pencils. Decide what you will pray for with each color (Example use Red while praying for family or Blue- Neighbors etc…). While you are all coloring/drawing, talk about each subject you are using. When you are done, say AMEN.
