Hampden Meadows Homeless Outreach Project
Every Sunday morning, anywhere from 250-350 homeless men and women, gather for a meal at the Friendship Breakfast at Mathewson Street UMC in Providence. Volunteers from all over the state help to procure, prepare, and serve all week long, demonstrating a true “it takes a village” sense of community. The giving season is always at its peak during the months of November and December, however, as the seasons change there is always a need. Last year, 50 Hampden Meadows students and parents delivered 200 backpacks to many of these folks over a shared meal. It was a real opportunity for our students to see and feel what their community efforts are doing and how they can play an important role in someone else’s life. This year, we would like to continue the impact we had on this population of homeless men and women. The following items will be placed in a backpack that will be delivered to the homeless and “home poor” people from Mathewson St. Church in Providence.
Your help with this service project is generously received.
NOTE: You may find many of these items in the travel size section of places like CVS, Rite-Aid, Walmart, Target, Dollar Store, or Job Lot. Please only buy non-gender clothing items. Please return all backpack items to Hampden Meadows by Thursday, May 30th. Contact Mr. Whittaker (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ms. Burke (email@example.com)

BARRINGTON RELAY FOR LIFE EVENT
Hello Barrington Community! The Barrington Relay For Life committee would like to formally welcome you to help support our event on Friday, May 31st! Relay For Life is a fundraiser that takes place annually across the country in support of the American Cancer Society. This year, the event is being organized by a board of four juniors from Barrington High School, and we could use all the help we can get to make this event fun for everyone. From Monday, May 6th until Wednesday, May 31st, there will be collection jars placed in the lobby of the Barrington elementary schools. We are grateful for anything you and your families are willing to contribute. We have no budget for our event and all funding for essentials (ex: tables, activities, etc.) is currently coming out of our own pockets, so every little bit helps. The more money we can collect together, the more we can give back to the American Cancer Society. Families are encouraged to attend the Barrington branch of Relay For Life from 6pm-9pm at the Barrington High School track on Friday, May 31st. There will be snacks, live music, crafts, and activities for everyone to enjoy at booths set up around the track. Admission to the event is free, but tickets will be available for attendees to purchase at the door. Tickets can be redeemed at any of the activity booths over the course of the night. If any of you have children attending Barrington High School, please encourage them to join/make their own relay team! In order for this to be a success, we need students to sign up as well! High school students on teams are welcome to stay for a portion of the night even if they are unable to stay overnight. Thank you so much and together we can make a difference in the lives of cancer patients and survivors!
