“There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.” – Nelson Mandela
Over the summer the FACE office transformed, from a relatively quiet work environment, into crazy town. On July 3rd we started our yearly 6-week Summer Adventure Club program (SAC). Spearheaded by Marisa Martinez, Jonathan Douglas, Jorg Letkemann, and Xavier Brumfield. Filled with games, fun, lessons, and Friday field trips the participants got to gain a variety of new experiences. Among other things, we learned about faraway lands such as Paraguay, South Africa, and our neighbor Mexico. Faced with new traditions and languages the children learned to appreciate the value of diversity. We played drums, did yoga, boxed, learned about Jesus, did crafts, canoed, hiked, went horse-back riding, went to the pool, ate great food, and so much more. We all had a great time and none of this would have been possible if it wasn’t for our great volunteers and partners. We want to thank our 25+ volunteers and our partners that support FACE and make Summer Adventure Club possible. We could not have done any of it without all of you. Every minute you volunteered and every dollar you donated is greatly appreciated and has blessed not just the kids that participated but also us as leaders. Thank you! Thank you for your time and thank you for your donations. This was the seventh year of SAC and with your support we hope to bless the community for many more years.
