Volunteering For All Ages

We actually met City Changers while we were volunteering for the League of Miracles.  My son, CJ is part of the National Junior Honor Society and one of the requirements to be part of that organization is to volunteer 2 hours a month.

That is how we found League of Miracles. We went once and CJ wanted to go back every Saturday they had games, so we did.

We had made arrangements to meet some of CJ’s friends at the League of Miracles.  One of his friends and his mom were at the League of Miracles with City Changers volunteering that day. That is how I found out about City Changers!

I looked City Changers up because you guys seemed like such a fun group.  I think it’s beneficial to the community to be involved. I think it’s also great to instill a sense of community and service to our young people.  I feel we lose a lot of that in our busy daily lives.

With the shut down, we are missing our volunteer work! We look forward to volunteering with City Changers again soon.

Shawna and CJ

Thank You!

Dear City Changers.

You cannot be thanked enough for your hearts and hands for Boys & Girls Club youth and families! Your volunteerism made a difference for our Thanksgiving dinner guests. Your support created a very special dinner for youth and families who have many pressures in their lives. Your kindness took some of those pressures off and together, families, shared a brighter Thanksgiving Holiday. We are Blessed by your friendship and vision for our community. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Chris

Blessing Bags
(Wes Raley)

I thank City Changers for facilitating change not only in our cities but also in our families. We had the privilege of participating in the “blessing bags” project to help the homeless.

Today, as our family headed home from a restaurant with full bellies, we saw a homeless man standing on the corner with a sign asking for help. Normally, we would wonder if we were supposed to help or just keep driving. It was so nice to be prepared with a blessing bag!

Thanks to City Changers, we knew exactly what to do. The man was so thankful as we traded verbal blessings and pulled away.

This produced a healthy discussion with our children about some of the hardships and problems in the world and also how God has equipped us to bring His love and healing to the nations. My children got to witness firsthand how God cares for every person in the world and sent us at just the right time to brighten that man’s day.

We are better as a family because City Changers facilitated, motivated, and equipped us to make a difference. You helped us jump in where we once felt overwhelmed and didn’t know how to begin. Thank you for helping me teach my children how to light up the world.

Mural In Mooresville

Hundreds of people gathered downtown Mooresville for the town’s first ever mural on Saturday October 21st. Designed and supervised by Nüe Origin, a local group of young adults dedicated to changing the world by changing the arts, the colorful artwork represented the body of Christ working together in unity. City Changers coordinated the project with the town of Mooresville and the Nüe Origin artists, and we painted, too!
