In between all the muck and the yuck around here, a very important yearly event has also come and gone.
It’s the time of year when we at Riverwood put on our work gloves, pick up our rakes and lawnmowers and set out to give some love away “no strings attached”.
This year we asked kids from our weekly “KidzClub” – a gathering of neighbourhood kids from Elmwood – if they would like to join in. We ended up with about 15 kids on the block, pitching in and helping out in their own community! Not all of these kids attend church regularly or even at all, but over the weeks at KidzClub, we have been able to form relationships with them that we hope spill over into positive life change for themselves and for the community of Elmwood!
Way to go Kids! We learned alot about giving away a part of our lives to be a blessing in someone else’s…!
