Youth in Action 2019 has two main opportunities to serve this year:
- The Comfort House in McAllen – a nonprofit ministry providing end-of-life care to people no matter “their age, race, ethnicity, religion, social status, or ability to pay, taking care of loved ones as if they are their own.”
Youth will help with outdoor painting and lawn work at the home.
- Emily’s Meals, A Helping hand – an ecumenical homeless ministry that prepares and delivers around 50 meals a day to people living without shelter in McAllen.
Youth will help sort and organize donated food in their warehouse.
Sign up your youth and sponsors today and help our diocese spread the love of Christ, reaching out in His name to serve the larger community hosting our annual Diocesan Council. More details and links to register are at council-dwtx.org/youth-in-action.
p.s. De-cluttering your closet this month? Bring your unused shoes to Youth In Action to donate! For the month of February, the youth group at St. John’s, McAllen (our hosts for Youth In Action 2019) is collecting gently used footwear. Shoes collected will be given to micro-enterprise start ups in developing countries; the youth group will be rewarded by the pound for shoes they collect with funds to put toward other youth group mission projects, camp scholarships, and a Confirmation retreat.
