Washington Elementary would like to thank Outward Church for their special service project to our families in need.  Outward church contacted us regarding donating food for our families in need during thanksgiving.  We referred 40 families (more than 200 people).  Outward church not only provided the food, they cooked the food and delivered it while it was still warm to our families.  In addition, they delivered a Christmas tree including ornaments, lights and other decorations and students received 1 or 2 gifts to put under the Christmas tree. 

A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions.  For many of our families, it was the first time they had a Thanksgiving meal or the only food they had on their table (stated by one family). For others, this is their first Christmas tree.   Families who may not be able to buy gifts for their children, now have gifts under the tree.

On behalf of all our families, thank you Outward Church for your acts of kindness.   It’s nice to know that our community really tries to help those that are in most need.
