Greetings from Jonestown!
Summer is always a great time here at the Family Center. About seventy children from age two to sixteen signed up for our annual “Let’s Move, Jonestown” nutrition and health program. The children got a healthy lunch and snack every day, and the pre-school also got breakfast –all supplied by Coahoma County Schools. They also went swimming at the Tunica Aquatic Center (30 minutes away) every week. We ended with Family Fun Day—complete with water slide, bouncer, and other games. Thanks to you, our donors, and especially to the Sisters of Providence from Seattle, who support our educational and health programs for children and adults. Together we can make a difference!
Six of our Montessori students “graduated” in May and will go to Kindergarten in August. We are very proud of the students—and their teachers—and wish them great success.
We are now able to take credit card donations through PayPal on our web site. Just click on the “donations” page and choose your amount!
For those of you who shop on Amazon, the Family Center is now a designated charity on Amazon Smile. Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to a registered charity. Just go to http://smile.amazon.com , list the Jonestown Family Center as your charity, and shop away!
Gratefully, in Christ,
Sr. Teresa Shields and staff of the Jonestown Family Center
