THANKSGIVING WEEK GROCERIES

Thanksgiving for many of us is a time to eat too much and enjoy family. Sadly, that is not the situation for countless others in our community. A large number of kids in our neighborhoods are on reduced breakfast and lunch school programs. During holiday and summer breaks many children do not have access to food. Parents struggle financially to have enough food in their home for their children to eat. While many programs provide free Thanksgiving day meals, Valley Creek has decided to provide an entire week of groceries to families in need for Thanksgiving Week. If you would like to donate food or be part of the grocery bag assembly team then come join us.

 

Donation Times:

  • November 10 – 11 from 10am to 4pm
  • November 12 – 16 from 4pm to 8pm

 

Donation Location: Valley Creek Next Steps Center – 1305 TX-121 BUS, Lewisville, TX 75067

SERVE THE CITY DAY

The 3rd Saturday of every month we send teams out into our community to serve. Projects include park and neighborhood cleanup, hosting bike rodeos, sorting donations,  small construction projects, prayer walks and so much more.

 

We have several great service projects including working in a community garden, DIY projects at local schools, doing yard work, painting, light construction and much more.  There is a place for families, individuals, young and old to meet the community needs we see.

ANGEL TREE

This year the Next Steps Center is hosting the Salvation Army Angel Tree.

 

We will begin by meeting families in need during the Angel Tree Family Interviews followed up by the gift distribution on December 19th. The Interviews are a special time to sit with each family, to listen to their story and to find out what their children would like for Christmas. Then in December, we will see these same families and get a chance to share the love of Jesus and the joy of Christmas with them as gifts are handed out.

NSC Serving 548x548 - Local School
GET INVOLVED IN A LOCAL SCHOOL

Many kids in our communities could use encouragement and a smile to set them up for success in school.  We have been given the opportunity to serve several of our community schools by providing reading buddies, copy room helpers, mentors, lunch buddies, field trip chaperones, welcome teams, and so much more.

 

If you are interested in serving in a school environment please email NextStepsCenter@valleycreek.org, and we’ll be in touch.
