School success starts with being prepared!

Greetings!

Summer program is in full swing, it’s wonderful to hear the sounds of the children’s laughter throughout the building. While we have them here now enjoying summer, it will soon be time to start thinking about back to school.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

As we always do, we will collect donations of school supplies for the kids in Cameron’s Youth Program along with the families we serve in the Lyell-Otis neighborhood. Our goal is to have a backpack full of the supplies that each student needs along with extra supplies for the teachers at School #54. School can be a tough time for some of our kids and we want to make sure that they are fully equipped to succeed during the 2017-2018 academic year.


A donation of any size is greatly appreciated!

The cutoff date for supplies to be delivered to Cameron is Friday, August 25th.

Support the work of the Hebron Defense Committee

Send  a child from Hebron’s Old City to camp! It costs just $60 to give a boy or girl a five-day break from the checkpoints, soldiers and settlers, from an Israeli occupation that says “Palestinian lives don’t matter” this summer.

Christians Witnessing for Palestine partners with the Hebron Defense Committee, a grassroots organization in Hebron that provides the children with

  •       a trip out into the countryside,
  •       recreation to which they are normally denied access because of their location and economic realities,
  •        educational opportunities that build solidarity and enhance their dignity as Palestinians.

Christians Witnessing for Palestine is providing $120 worth seed money out of its budget to send two children to camp.  We are asking you to consider donating additional funds to give more Old City children the opportunity to look forward to five days of fun and solidarity, instead of checkpoints and soldiers.  The deadline for the 2017 summer camp is the end of June.  Funds sent after that time will be applied to the 2018 summer camp.

Please write out checks to The Downtown United Presbyterian Church or DUPC with CW4P-Camp in the memo and send them to 121 N. Fitzhugh Street, Rochester, NY 14614.

Free Jose Coyote Rally

On Thursday, March 9th, there was an Emergency Rally to Free Jose Coyote hosted by Metro Justice, at Summerville Presbyterian Church with 150+ people in attendance.  Jose Coyote Perez is a dairy farmworker, father, and community leader in Upstate NY who has been detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Jose has been a longtime champion in the fight for farmworker rights and is an active leader of the Alianza Agricola and Workers’ Center of CNY.   Jose was able to telephone in from the Batavia Detention Center during the rally.

How can you help Jose and others?

Motor City Mission Corps

The Presbytery of Detroit has two Work Groups that would like to promote service opportunities to the newsletters of close by Presbyteries. A brief overview is below. Are you the right person to send that information to for your Presbytery or could you point me in the right direction?

The Hands on Mission Work Group Inbound Mission Subcommittee sponsors both Summer Work Groups and Alternative Spring Break groups to serve within the Presbytery of Detroit.

The Motor City Mission Corps Work Group seeks 18-30 year olds who would be willing to come to live and serve for a year in our Presbytery.
