Reminder: the LOT Project tomorrow!

Just wanted to remind everyone that tomorrow is our monthly MOPS On the Town... this month, we're going to be visiting the LOT Project from 10:30 to 11am. If you didn't rsvp to the evite, come anyway! And don't forget to bring new or old winter accessories (such as scarves, hats, gloves, etc).  Click here for directions.

I honestly didn't know that much about the LOT Project until recently... & wow. It's an amazing initiative & I'm so glad our MOPS group is helping!

So here are a few things I've learned & thought I'd share:

What does The LOT Project stand for?  
"The Least Of These Project"

How does the LOT Project help our community?
They have several main focuses: 

  1. HOPE, which stands for "Helping Other People Eat" -- people line up for a hot meal & the opportunity to fill a bag with clothing from the free thrift store
  2. Donation Center -- every Monday evening, volunteers organize donated clothing, toys, school supplies & other items for the free thrift store
  3. AHOP, which stands for "Anderson House of Prayer" -- a 24-hour worship center that's open to everyone
  4. The Block Party at D. B. Walker Park -- a day-long event that provides free food, entertainment & helps build the community. Since its inception, the Block Party has served over 2000 meals with the help of 300+ volunteers. 
Why should you go tomorrow at 10:30am? 
Because it's a wonderful opportunity to teach your kids about giving & service to others here in Anderson.
