Carrollton Christmas Camp will take place December 18-22 and 27-29 at Central St. Matthew’s Church on Carrollton Avenue.  SCAPC founded this camp four years ago to reach out to neighborhood families during their Christmas break, and a great need was uncovered. Each year, the camp provides enrichment activities for these students, while easing the burden of childcare on their parents. We are looking for teams of three-five people each to prepare one kid-friendly lunch or breakfast. The meals should consist of an entree, side, and a fruit or veggie. If you are interested, please email Sean Tate at sean@scapc.org. REMAINING OPENINGS are:

  • Tues., Dec. 19 – lunch
  • Fri., Dec. 22 – lunch
  • Wed., Dec. 27 – breakfast or lunch
  • Thurs., Dec. 28 – lunch
    You can also donate towards camp supplies by clicking here.

 

Winter Clothing for Homeless: The Program of Hope homeless ministry is in need of winter clothing in good condition, new socks and underwear, and toiletries in small containers such as travel-size. December is SCAPC’s month to provide lunches, and we like to be well-stocked with other things as well. Please place your items in the bin in Frampton Fellowship  Hall. Questions? Email Dale Curry, dalecurry2004@yahoo.com, or Ann Van Horn, hvanhorn3@gmail.com.
