a) Children either did not go to school or did not attend on a day-to-day basis. b) Graduating Seniors did not have the funds to pay for all graduating expenses. Therefore, they would bypass the graduation experience. c) Our churches would not have a vacation Bible school or they would get leftovers from other churches and not be able to have things to make the VBS come alive for the children.
Goals & Objectives
a) We would be able to assist 300 children of limited income families with school clothing scholarships. b) We would be able to assist 10 graduating seniors of limited income families with scholarships to assist with graduating expenses. c) At least half or more of our churches will be able to offer VBS with the necessary material.
a) Make sure that the applications are distributed in a timely manner so that the children will be able to purchase clothing at the beginning of the new school year. b) See that all graduating high school seniors will have a chance to participate in the application process. c) Let all churches know of the availability of assistance for VBS supplies through their pastors as well as providing information to be placed in the conference newspaper.
