2016-2017 8th Grade RE class reaches out to show God's Mercy

to the residents of the Shelter for Friends of Abused Families, Inc.

at the closing of the Year of Mercy

 

The Year of Mercy was a blessed time for each of us to grow as a channel of God’s mercy and show our love for another. To keep the Year of Mercy on going in their hearts and to start the Advent Season with compassion towards others, Mrs. Andrea Tadlock’s 8th Grade Religious Education Class opened their hearts to the Shelter of Abused Families of Washington County. The students provided the families the food for a Thanksgiving Dinner and gave the residence hand made cards with thoughts of love and encouragement. The shelter gives families a safe haven from domestic violence and offers them a chance to take positive steps for a safer way of life. Many of these families leave their homes with nothing more that the clothes they wear and no other alternative for a safe place to live. The shelter provides security, education, support and tools to help these families find better opportunities to live and is funded solely on donations and grants.

The class personally delivered the dinner items and cards to the shelter the Thursday before Thanksgiving and had an opportunity to learn about the shelter by touring the facility and asking questions on how the shelter helps the families restart their lives. The visit gave the students the insight into merciful acts of kindness towards those in need as well as an understanding that domestic violence is close to home. It opened their heart by showing a small gesture can make difference in a person’s life.  A special thank you to Mrs. Greta Arndt who chaperoned and to Heather Medrow, the shelter manager who taught us the importance of the shelter and its good works.

 

The students involved were Andrew Arndt, Jocalyn Flayter, Bennett Flosid, Stephanie Gonnering, Madeline Pawlak, Jessica Stefan, Olivia Tadlock, Jacob Wagner, and Emma Weibel.

 

 

2015 8th Grade RE Class Reaches Out to

Shelter for Abused Families at Thanksgiving
 

The Year of Mercy is an opportunity for each of us to be a channel of God’s mercy and love towards one another.  To prepare for this Extraordinary Holy Year, Mrs.  Andrea Tadlock’s 8th Grade Religious Education Class opened their hearts to the Shelter for Abused Families of Washington County by providing the families the food for a Thanksgiving Dinner.  They also gave the residence handmade cards with thoughts of love and encouragement.  The shelter provides families with a safe haven from domestic violence and gives them tools to take positive steps for a safer way of life.  Many of these families leave their homes with nothing more that the clothes they wear and no other alternative for a safe place to live.  The shelter provides security, education, support and tools to help these families find safer alternatives to live and is funded solely on donations and grants.

The class personally delivered the dinner items and cards to the shelter the Sunday before Thanksgiving and had an opportunity to learn about the shelter by touring the facility and asking questions on how the shelter helps the families restart their lives.  The visit provided the students the visibility into merciful acts  of kindness towards those in need as well as an understanding that domestic violence is close to home and we can help by giving a little time or making even a small donation.  To continue the acts of kindness during Advent, Mrs. Tadlock’s class will donate needed supplies that the shelter needs during the winter months.
