Ad­vent Square re­cieves spe­cial bless­ings

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Society Scene - Palm Beach - - News -

Res­i­dents of Ad­vent Square se­nior liv­ing com­mu­nity each re­ceived “bless­ing boxes” at a spe­cial cel­e­bra­tion on Oc­to­ber 21. Pre­pared by stu­dents from Ad­vent Lutheran School and mem­bers of Ad­vent Lutheran Church, the bless­ing boxes - which con­tained hand-writ­ten notes, Bi­ble verses, prayer cards, and “sur­vival kit” goodie bags - were made pos­si­ble by a grant from Kids Care Clubs as part of the Kids Care Week. Fam­ily Prom­ise (home­less min­istry) also ben­e­fit­ted from the grant.

Cel­e­brated the third week, Kids Care Week rec­og­nizes the power of kids to reach out and help oth­ers in their lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“We wanted to let Ad­vent Square res­i­dents know that they are a bless­ing to us,” said Donna Drucker, di­rec­tor of fam­ily life min­istries at Ad­vent. “This project was the per­fect op­por­tu­nity for us to bring to­gether all of our min­istries, which rep­re­sent ev­ery age and stage of life, and to cel­e­brate our se­nior mem­bers at Ad­vent Square.”

The Palm Beach County Kids Care Club is one of more than 1,800 clubs na­tion­wide. Since 1990, Kids Care Clubs, a pro­gram of Hand­sOn Net­work, has been de­vel­op­ing com­pas­sion and in­spir­ing a spirit of vol­un­teer­ing in ele­men­tary and mid­dle school chil­dren.
