We need your help!

Update: Thank You!

Thank You! Thank You!

We have received numerous generous donations and are very thankful for each and every one of you. You have provided the means of comfort for some who maybe having a very difficult holiday. Thank you again for being the hands and feet of Jesus in our community.

Every year we partner with St. Michael's Preschool to assist our ministry partner, Faith Lettman, with Thanksgiving dinners for families that are in need. These range from older folks on fixed incomes to families that have experienced a loss of job or housing. We try to do whatever we can to help them find joy in this season.

This year in particular there has been an increase in requests. Our Preschool has generously sponsored 15 families, which means there are 20 more families for St. Michael's to assist.

Here are the items we need:

  • Boxes of Stuffing Mix
  • Box of Instant Potatoes
  • Box of Macaroni and Cheese
  • Canned Yams
  • Brown Sugar
  • Bag of Marshmallows
  • Canned Green Beans
  • Can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • French Fried Onions
  • Canned of Corn
  • Canned Cranberry Sauce
  • Jars of Gravy (Or packets)
  • Cornbread Mix
  • Jello Mix

We also are in need of 17 turkey breasts, 18 turkeys and 5 canned hams. If possible, I would also like to include at least a $10 Publix or Walmart gift card for the families so they can get perishable ingredients needed to make these items (butter, milk, eggs, etc.)

If you prefer to give a monetary gift, I am happy to shop for needed items.

We ask that items be turned in no later than Tuesday, November 14th.

Thank you so much for your generosity!



Can you give an hour a week to read with a child?

What is Read2Succeed?

Orange County Public Schools' Read2Succeed program engages volunteers who provide tutoring and mentoring to first- and second-grade students who are developing early literacy skills.

Additional info: Trained volunteers meet with students once or twice a week on school campus during school hours. In addition to assisting with reading skills, students form a positive attitude toward reading and build self-confidence.

We are asking for at least a six month commitment from volunteers in this program. Providing a sense of continuity with adult relationships is an important part of the program.

To volunteer, please click the button below and follow the directions to register as an ADDitions Volunteer at Lake Silver Elementary. Please feel free to contact Mike in the office with any questions!
