CareFest February 2019
February 2019 was CareFest at Crosswater Church. Two large projects were completed with over 20 volunteers participating.
The projects were at Kids Bridge, where they painted, pressure washed, replaced gutters and downspouts, replaced some siding, and did yardwork and landscaping projects. Their other project was at a private residence where they did carpentry and lots of yardwork.
We want to thank all the volunteers from Crosswater Church who came out to show the love of Christ to those who were served.
CareFest January 2019
2019 marked a new direction for Somebody Cares St. Augustine CareFests. We have gone from an annual event to a monthly event working with different churches every month.
January 2019 was our inaugural month and our first church partner was St. Anastasia Catholic Church. They kicked off 2019 by doing 6 projects with over 25 Volunteers.
The projects ranged from deck repair, painting, pressure washing, and lots of yardwork and landscaping projects.
We want to thank all the volunteers who came out to show the love of Christ to those who were served.
Coats 4 Kids!
Coats 4 Kids 2018 was our seventh year to collect coats for homeless and disadvantaged students in our St. Johns County School District. During the month of November coats were collected at 16 churches throughout St. Johns county. On December 3rdand 4thover 500 coats, along with socks and packages of underwear were delivered to our storage locker.
We want to give a special thanks to Christ the King Anglican Church who not only collected coats but sent volunteers both days to receive, hang and label each coat. On December 14th, coats were given out by Michael Israel and Mitch Moody of the St. Johns County School Districts ASSIST program. Over 60 families were served that day.
Coats 4 Kids 2018 was truly an example of what happens when Divine resources meet human needs through loving channels. We want to thank all the churches that participated and everyone who brought a coat.
