Help is available to every Sterling family that needs help getting their kids back to school this year.
Sterling, VA – Through the collaborative efforts of Restore Community Church, Enrich NOVA::Generosity Can, Kids R First, and generous community members, every child in Sterling that comes from a family in need can receive necessary school supplies to return to school.
On August 23, Restore Community Church unleashed a downpour of generosity by renting out Downpour Water Park at Algonkian Regional Park and providing a FREE Family Day at the Water Park to the community. Over 1000 people and 267 families participated in this event. Each family gave one or more backpacks to help children get back to school. In all, 425 packs were collected. This overflow of generosity and love is changing children’s lives and changing the Sterling community.
It is time for the church to leave the building and actively share Jesus’ love in practical ways by meeting people’s needs in the community. And this is what Restore does.
In less than a year, Restore has distributed 932 pounds of food to area food pantries, served over a week of meals to over 100 under resourced families, moved a single mom from a hostile situation to a safe environment, helped a family start a new business, and provided $2500 of daily necessities to families coming out of homelessness.
On Sunday, October 25, Restore has its’ grand opening at the Countryside Regal Cinema in Sterling. In Restore Community Church, generosity is a way of life. People interested in learning more about Restore Community Church can visit the church’s website at www.restorenova.com.
