Educational IMPACT

What’s it’s like to be an IMPACT volunteer

Here’s a message from one of our IMPACT volunteers.

IMPACT volunteer Joan Weninger and her granddaughter

 

Hi St. Lukers!

Joan Weninger here! My husband and I have been members of St. Luke’s for four years. I’ve been asked to tell you why I enjoy volunteering at Maxey Elementary.

From the time I walk down the hall and into a classroom I feel joyful and grateful to have the opportunity to serve. I can’t believe I’m doing the Lord’s work! But that’s the nature of God. Whatever you do in His name, the more He gives back and I sure feel it!

Children are always thrilled to have someone walk into their classroom who cares enough to spend the time to be a cheerleader for them. This past year and a half has put a cramp in my style but I’m looking forward to being part of the Maxey scene again this year, fully vaccinated, mask and all! So, who wants to give and receive some joy?

 

If you would like more information about volunteering at Maxey Elementary or Mollie Ray Elementary School, please contact Amy Winslow at awinslow@st.lukes.org.

Book Drive

Hosting a Book Drive is “APPLE-solutely” the best way to again support one of our partner schools, Maxey Elementary.

As the world becomes smaller and more diverse in culture and experience, the books on our “wishlist” foster social and emotional learning and promote self-esteem, spark conversations and build empathy.  YOU can make an educational IMPACT without leaving your home!

Mollie Ray Educational Impact Leader Needed

If you have a heart for school children and interest in leading a group of volunteers, we are in need of a lay leader for Mollie Ray Elementary School. The leader will work with the administration team to see how St. Luke’s can help the school meet their goals. To learn more about this ministry, contact Amy Winslow at awinslow@st.lukes.org or 407.876.4991 ext. 297.
