Giving Back

The Venturing Crew and Junior Crew (our children and youth high school and junior high programs) spent part of their spring break giving back to the community.

On Monday, 10 Venturing Crew students served lunch at The Bridge. They served water and served behind the line. For most it was their first time to serve at The Bridge and they really enjoyed the experience.

On Wednesday, 18 Junior Crew and Venturing Crew students went to the Shoes for Orphan's Souls facility through Buckner. The group sorted new shoes and new Rangers shirts to be be sent overseas to orphans and other at risk children and families.

In both programs, we teach the students to give back to the community that has given so much to them. The students have an opportunity to go on field trips, out of town trips and ultimately receive a college scholarship. In order to participate in many of these activities, community service hours are a requirement.
