Help a Child Learn to Read this Summer with Project Transformation
Each summer we partner with Project Transformation, an organization serving low-income children and young adults through a summer camp and after-school program. Providence Church volunteers serve at Trinity Community Commons (located at the former Trinity United Methodist Church) on Trinity Lane in North Nashville. We also care for the summer interns working with the children.
How You Can Volunteer
What You’ve Already Done
This summer, we had a goal to collect 70 ‘Camp in a Bag’ kits to be passed out to kids. These bags were filled with a brand new book, sidewalk chalk, snacks, a notebook, crayons, pencils, pencil sharpener, and a bookmark. Not only did we provide 70, but through your generous hearts, we collected 105 bags! Those extra bags will help some of the other camp locations that find themselves in short supply. Each summer we average between 12 and 15 faithful volunteers who reading with our children. They make a big difference. Through this innovative summer…over 40 of our families have engaged in serving with Project Transformation. That means we more than doubled our volunteer engagement. In a summer that sought to see us feel more disconnected, you have shown the power of God’s love and light drawing us together, even if from afar.
Thank you for living in our vision to see those who feel disconnected from God and the church find hope, healing, and wholeness in this very special way to serve more than 100 kids in our community.
