IT’S MANOS BTS TIME!!
Believe it or not, it’s already time to sign up to volunteer with Manos Back-To-School! Back-to-School is an important community program that provides children living in need with one backpack, a set of school supplies, two new sets of clothing and a book.
You can help by signing up to volunteer with other SHPC folks on July 26th! We have a special group volunteer signup for this. Click here to sign up!
For over ten years, Shepherd of the Hills has supported Manos de Cristo, an organization that provides
- A dental clinic at deeply discounted prices
- Educational classes that include ESL,Spanish literacy, computer literacy and citizenship
- Food pantry and clothes closet to assist the poor
- Back to School program
Volunteers of all ages help with their back-to-school drive in July and August, golf tournament in September, and tamale sale in winter. We have also participated in food drives and school supply drives to support Manos de Cristo’s efforts. Shepherd of the Hills has many members who serve on the Manos de Cristo board or volunteer weekly in classes or pantry, and we even have an SHPC member who works on their full-time staff! Our VBS has, in the past, collected Manos de Cristo supplies throughout Vacation Bible School week.
Watch for announcements regarding Manos de Cristo’s annual fundraisers, events and supply drives, and browse their website fore more information about volunteering.
