Several times each year, we have the opportunity to be the revolution in our city by giving “High Fives” to those in need. These blessings come in the form of donations that cost around $5 each. You can purchase an item from the list (which will change for every opportunity) or use give your $5 gift online. If you would like to give a monetary gift toward HighFive Blessings, please click HERE and choose the HighFive Blessings designation.
Over the past year, we have blessed the following ministries through HighFive…
- Spring 2016 – we blessed the homeless in our city with over 70 lbs of coffee and 40 lbs each of creamer and sugar through our partners at St. John’s Center for Homeless Men.
- Summer 2016 – we gave dozens of bookshelves and hundreds of children’s books to the kids at Family Scholar House during a Kickoff to Summer Reading festival that we hosted at one of their campuses.
- Summer 2016 – we sent our missions team with suitcase after suitcase of school supplies for kids in the Dominican Republic, distributed through our partners at GO Ministries to kids who cannot afford these items for themselves.
- Fall 2016 – we collected backpacks, socks, underwear, gloves, hats, and hoodies to keep the homeless men in our city warm over the winter. The majority of these are distributed through St. John’s Center for Homeless Men, and the rest are handed out individually.
This month, we’re gearing up for our Family Scholar House block party and book giveaway!
