This is an invitation to come out and make a difference and have fun. Every 3 or 4 months, the Ventura Act of Kindness team gets together to go out and do good deeds in the Ventura area and neighboring cities. On Saturday, Dec.16 they will go out and make a difference in our community. Meet at Trinity Lutheran Church on 196 N. Ashwood Ave at 11am and get your assignments. Spend on the average 3-4 hours helping others. Children are encouraged to participate. Please invite a friend.
Acts of kindness will include:
1. Visiting with the homeless (a group will visit with the homeless who congregate down at Mission park across from the Ventura mission.) It’s a simple but powerful act by just spending some time talking to a person, asking their name, and listening to them. Makes a huge difference in their day.
2. Assist elderly person in Ventura getting home cleaned and organized.
3. Assist Ventura Tender Life organization (www.tenderlife.org) with yard work and maintenance tasks.
In addition, there is an opportunity/need to provide supplies and gift cards to The City Center transitional living facility (www.thecitycenter.org). You can bring supplies and gift cards at 11:00 or you can deliver them straight to The City Center.
