Matthew 25:35 "... I was thirsty and you gave me drink..."
Our youth group, for the third year, supports an on going effort to bring clean drinking water to people in need. Visit these links and at bottom for more info:
If you are able to redeem cans/bottles and wish to write a check out, to
Wellspring Water Inc.,
I will forward the check, OR, mail it directly to them. That would be VERY helpful to the effort. They have a very small 'staff' and are overwhelmed by the awesome response and quantities of cans and bottles.
If you cannot redeem them yourself, then bring any redeemable cans and bottles to any of our youth group meetings and I will deliver them to the Wellspring people running the program. If you have any collection ideas, please share them with me. This program will run throughout the entire youth group year.
PLEASE let's continue to try and help. With very little work on our part, we can make a BIG difference in the lives of people to whom clean water is not a 'given'.
