Elementary Chapel Donation

Dear Parents, 

This semester in Elementary Chapel we will be partnering with Free & Safe Indonesia. At our chapel this morning, Jorge Marquez from Free & Safe shared with us about how his organization provides safe housing for at-risk youth and women and empowers them with education and life skills for a better future.

Next week we will begin collecting donations at Chapel each Friday and then give all the money we raise to Free & Safe in June at the end of the semester. Please talk with your child about this opportunity to practice generosity.

You can learn more about Free & Safe Indonesia at https://freeandsafe.co/en/.
