This year as we began to think about organizations and causes we could bless during the Advent season, we couldn’t help but be drawn to a local approach. 2020 has been a year that has brought a lot of hardships to families, including some in our own community. This year, paying even the most routine or expected fees may be even more challenging with the potential losses of jobs and income for families. One particular fee that impacts many families this year are book rental and other school fees. These fees can often be in the hundreds of dollars per child. This is a burden that many families can’t bear alone. One of the ways we want to encourage being a good neighbor during this Advent season is to collect an offering to help pay these fees off for as many families as possible. We believe that even the simplest gift this year can bring light into the darkness around us.
This year, there is approximately $50,000 of outstanding fees due to HCCSC. As a church, we would like to commit to a goal of at least $5,000 while helping as many families as we can overcome this burden. If you would like to partner with us to achieve this goal, you can give to this project the same way you give your tithe & offerings. Be sure to designate your gift to Advent Project or HCCSC School Fees.
