Scripture calls us to love our neighbors…
spiritually and literally!
Central loves and cares for our
community—and Jefferson Elementary is right in our backyard, a
mere 1.3 miles away!
For over 25 years Central has been loving on the families of Jefferson Elementary School!
How do we do this?
KIDS HOPE USA
For over 25 years, Kids Hope USA at Central has been sending mentors into Jefferson Elementary. These mentors work one on one with students who need a little extra love. That looks a lot like lunch periods playing board games, fun outside of school activities, and an occasional pizza party! It only takes one positive adult to impact the life of a child.
Hand2Hand is a ministry that through your generosity, every week sends home nearly 200 bags of food with students. These bags of food sometimes are all kids will have access too for the weekend. Taking stress off of families plate by helping make sure there is food on that plate!
POP UP EVENTS
Over the summer we work with other churches and community members to have a TON of fun at Harbor Village. We help keep kids reading by getting brand new books in their hands, practice math facts, eat lunch, played games, learn about Jesus, and have plenty of popsicles!
Ottawa Community Schools Network serves Holland Public Schools families with a range of economic backgrounds. Being able to support a family experiencing crisis or financial hardship, with free household items through a dignified retail setting, will offset their monthly cost and alleviate the financial stress many of our families face.
Central is partnering with OCSN and Holland Public Schools to help support the Power H Shop!
Who does the Power H Shop serve?
The Power H Shop serves the families and staff of Holland Public Schools. This includes our friends at Jefferson!
Pray for the team launching the shop. That God would provide exactly what they need to serve the families of Holland Public well. Pray for the families and staff that will utilize the shop. That it helps them know that they are loved!
The Power H Shop Amazon wishlist is up and running! This wishlist is updated with the needs of the shop as the arise. When you shop from this list...your items ship right to the Power H Shop!
