christmas project 2021
Every year our Southwood family chooses a cause to support for the Christmas Holiday.
who are we supporting?
This year we have selected the Central Indiana Teen Challenge - Teenage Girls Group from Lebanon, Indiana. This specific Teen Challenge Center works to restore adolescent females (ages 13-17) with life controlling problems to a productive lifestyle and become mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well and spiritually alive.
why are we supporting them?
These girls have been in tough places in their short life. They are enrolled in a 12-15 month program that requires them to live on-site during that time while they work to overcome a life controlling issue. It is a difficult and brave choice that these families make to live apart from each other in order to restore their lives - ESPECIALLY during the holiday season. We want to bless them and let them know that we care about them during their journey.
what are we doing?
We plan to provide each staff member (8) and student (22) with a small gift bag with about $5 worth of goodies in it and a $50 gift card. The staff members will take the students to the store to allow them to use the gift card to pick out items. We will also be providing an honorarium to CITC as they will conduct the Sunday Morning Service on December 12th. Finally, we will provide them with a hot meal after that service. Our total budget for this project is $2,350.
