"Loose Offerings" for March


celebrate! RVA
Sunday, March 4 Loose Offerings Program

Let our Boundless Generosity continue! With the introduction of our First Sunday Loose Offerings Program in January, the first Sunday of every month the offerings will be dedicated to a specific charity.

This Sunday's March loose offerings will benefit celebate! RVA. This is a nonprofit organization with a simple mission: to give disadvantaged children in Richmond, VA, a memorable birthday celebration in a safe and fun environment. They believe that joy from something as simple as a birthday party can transform a child and impact their lives in countless ways. Everybody deserves a party!

celebrate! RVA partners with Richmond City Public Schools and Safe Harbor and provides the cake, activities, and decorations necessary to host a special celebration that provides many good memories. They also partner with the Richmond City Jail REAL (Recovering from Everyday Addictive Lifestyles) Program, which offers inmates a comprehensive parenting program that teaches them to be more engaged and active parents. Those participants who have missed their children's birthdays due to incarceration can (upon successful completion of the program) have a birthday celebration at the jail for their child.

What can you do? A donation can help make a difference in the lives of these children. Just $15 sponsors a group birthday child, $50 for a cake and drinks, or $150 sponsors a party for an individual.

If questions, please contact Jewel Caven, Loose Offerings Committee Chair.
