This is what I'm talking about:
Serra Mesa Christian Fellowship, a church my wife and I have visited, hosted a rummage sale to benefit nearby Jones Elementary School. This is the sort of involvement that I applaud from churches supporting public schools.
I hope to get an interview with the pastor shortly. When I do, I'll post it here.
Hey Dan. Can't wait to read the interview.
Our church is envolved in Sacks of Love. We send home a "sack" of food for kids who are undernourished/under fed to have on the weekend. To many church folk distain the public schools to the point they loose focus on the fact that they are mission fields!
I know you've probably given this some thought, and maybe you will get some more info from the pastor, but my question is...
How does hosting a rummage sale improve reading for low-income and other struggling students?
Steve, you are so correct! I want to look into Sacks of Love more and maybe get your church on my blog! Ok, so that's not much of an accomplishment, but I love reading about churches reaching the community!
Nate, it has nothing overtly to do with increasing reading scores. But let me suggest that any church helping to get supplies into a local school is doing more than anyone else in the local community to help.
