Advent Giving Tree

Advent

Supporting teen and low income mothers

During Advent we sponsor an Advent Giving Tree to support pregnant teen and low income mothers through local pregnancy support centers. Check back near the beginning of Advent for more information.

Homeless Care Packages

Yearly

Providing basic necessities for the homeless

At least once a year, the Newman Center collects various small items such as toiletries and non-perishable snacks. These are then combined into care packages for people who are homeless. Community members are encouraged to take a package and give it to someone they meet who is homeless or otherwise in need.

Special Opportunities

Interfaith Shelter

Overnight hosts, meal providers, shoppers, set-up crew, and financial support are all needed to make our homeless brothers’ and sisters’ stay in Roetter Hall a good one. The shelter in 2017 is from February 11 through February 25.  For more info or to sign up, contact Kellie.
