The Youth and Young Adult program is growing!
We have been blessed with several very active members who have been helping us make important connections with key youth leaders in the area. The Youth and Young Adult Committee is developing specific goals and strategies to make our work sustainable, impactful, and mission-oriented. We have already seen some great projects coming from our young members. Here are a few highlights from previous months:
·Various different high school groups (sports teams, youth groups, religion classes, etc.) have donated hours of work at our thrift stores.
·Over 30 young adults hosted an Easter egg hunt for young families in the Pontiac area.
·Young folks and staff held a carwash at our Clinton Township store to raise money to help send a child to Camp Ozanam
·Young Adults from our Agape special works Conference spent time playing board games and cards with residents at a local senior living community.
·Young adults helped plan and host a field day for families of the SOS shelter of Oakland county, hosted by St John Fisher.
Thank you to all for your prayers and help in the next few months as we continue to develop and expand!
Board Game Master
Youth/Senior Game Night
Eleven youth and young adults met on Saturday, May 14, in Rochester Hills to spend time and laughter with residents of the American House. The night was spent playing games such as Monopoly, Rummy, LIFE, and Go Fish.
Residents shared stories of growing up in the area and our volunteers did an AMAZING job teaching new games and making everyone feel included. We even learned how to do the twist the “right way” from one of the residents. Elementary students from Wattles elementary put together and decorated small gift bags for the residents to take home and enjoy. We hope to visit again!
The work we do at St. Vincent de Paul Detroit depends largely on our Vincentians and volunteers. Be a part of something great! Become a Vincentian today!
