A new year at McNamara Elementary

We are entering the third year of our partnership with McNamara Elementary School. For those of you who are new to WBC, McNamara is an "at risk" Elementary School just across Braeswood from our church. The principal, Tiffany Chenier, is a wonderful Christian woman and a strong leader. They have some amazing teachers and staff, and we've been with them as they achieved Recognized status. Meanwhile, we've been able to minister to families in crisis in a variety of ways:

--Campus beautification projects.

--Extending benevolence help to families who would otherwise lose their homes or have utilities shut off.

--Purchasing school uniforms and donating school supplies for families who cannot afford them.

--Volunteering at PTO fundraisers.

--Bringing gifts to underprivileged families at Christmas.

--Boosting morale with snacks for teachers.

--Volunteering on campus as tutors, mentors, and office aides.

If you are interested in participating as a regular volunteer, we'll be having a meeting September 7 at 10 PM in C109. If you cannot make this meeting, please let me know.
