Our classes are filled to capacity; we have 280 children
attending. Since there are 15 to 20 children in each class, craft
preparation is time-consuming.
To help with all the craft preparation, we order all our craft
supplies in bulk. Then we recruited a group of ladies at a local
retirement home to help us out. These ladies call themselves the
Pleasant View Craft Crew (PVCC). They get together once a month to
cut, sort, and count craft supplies for our program. This crew is
an important part of our ministry now, and they're saving our
teaching staff valuable time.
To let the crew know how they're making a difference, I take
photos of the children making the crafts and share them at our PVCC
party night. We serve coffee, tea, and pastries as a way to thank
the ladies for their time. I share with the ladies what our program
is all about and specific stories of children and staff whose lives
have been changed through the program.
Please keep in mind that phone numbers, addresses, and
