Nordstroms in Schaumburg IL has donated several bags of nice high end clothing to be distributed to those in need.
I am trying to find someone who lives near there or who will be shopping at the mall there that would be willing to pick up this donation. I eventually need to get it to the Gallilee Baptist Church of Roseland for distribution but the most important thing is to get the donation picked up asap to keep Nordstorms happy and in a giving mood to us.
We can latter make arrangements to pick up the donation from you next time we have someone going out that way.
Another possiblility is if someone has a contact at a church near there that we could contact to see if they might have a volunteer to do this.
A brief overview of BODY OF CHRIST CARES was just posted at our WEB EVANGELIST BLOG
Soon Body of Christ Cares will be sponsoring an activity to take urban youth fishing.
Most of the children involved have never been fishing before and it will be a real treat just to go to a tranquil, safe location.
CHRISTIAN VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED
(Chicago region on a Saturday morning to early afternoon)
1) We need someone who is familiar with the rules and regulations for the State of Illinois. If we take a group of kids (between 7 and 50 depending on the amount of volunteers and funding available) fishing, do we need to purchase a fishing licence for each kid or only for the adults? Do we purchase this at a currency exchange? Also are there any other regulations that we need to be aware of (minimum size to keep etc.) ?
2) We need volunteers who know how to fish (and possibly clean and fry in case we add some store bought fish and have a fish fry).
3) We need volunteers who are willing to loan us fishing equipment.
4) We also need adult supervision even if you don’t know how to fish.
5) We need help with transportation. Volunteers with cars or vans who are available to pick up and take home kids. The best solution is to have several people get permission to use their church’s van for this. It is also our prayer that the Lord would touch someones heart to purchase us a quality bus to take urban youth on Christian Youth Activities and also to be shared in the BODY OF CHRIST by churches in the Chicagoland area when they have need for a special activity.
6) Let’s all pray that the kids will have a great time. That they will be refreshed physically, mentally, & spiritually.
7) If interested please contact me: Scott Reese – Scott@BodyofChristCares.org
