People of Chalice offer support for a local family

Chalice worked with “Friends of Fieldworkers” to show appreciation for farmworkers in April.  As part of that effort, we were asked to help a particular local family.  In addition to monetary and material contributions from the congregation, ten Chalice members and friends have collaborated to offer emotional support, guidance, and opportunities to get out and connect.

So far, there have been two shopping trips for much needed shoes and clothing, some special treats for birthday celebrations, offers of tutoring for younger children and a scholarship for a certification program.  Efforts are underway to help the family connect to additional resources for financial support, medical care, back to school supplies, and a family phone plan.  Help is welcome in planning and organizing future events for connection and care.
