Once again this Summer the Columbia District is partnering with Lutheran Family Services to offer Day Camp for the children of resettled refugees in the Columbia area. Virginia Wingard UMC (1500 Broad River Road, Columbia) is graciously hosting the program during the weeks of July 31 through August 4, and August 7 through August 11, each day from 8:45am to 12:45pm. Please be in prayer for this ministry and the families who will be touched by it. Financial support is also welcome and may be sent to Virginia Wingard designated for “Hand y Mano.”
One of the biggest outstanding needs is for volunteer help. Come and lend a hand in any way, by helping to entertain the kids or assisting in other ways. Simply sign-up using the online form below. If you only have one hour to give, that’s great. If you can do more, that’s a big help, too.
