LEARNING STARTS HERE LUNCHEON

2Gen, 1 Future

Supporting children and parents together to ensure life success

 

Featured Speaker_ Carolyn Heinrich

 

The latest research has shown that the best way to help families break out of the trappings of poverty is to work with both the parent and the child. Give a parent educational and professional pathways, as well as social, health and well-being support. Provide children with enriched early education -- while their brains are still forming -- in a caring environment. Together, the generations lift each other up and expand their opportunities for success. This is the 2Gen approach and the Mainspring Model.

Mainspring cares: Making Cards for Children in need of CHEER

Parent Supper will be December 8th, at 5:30. (The organization needs the card well in advance).  We will serve supper for both kids and parents, and childcare will be provided.  Since this is a project our older kids would probably enjoy, you're welcome to choose to keep kids that can participate in the big room with you, instead of having them in childcare.  I would strongly suggest keeping it to 1 kid, though, so you can spend quality time and enjoy yourself, too! (Unless your kids are school aged and are pretty independent)  Keep in mind we will also have things like hot glue guns around.

 

Prior to the event we will need to gather supplies! Starting now, Mainspring is accepting all craft/card supplies that might make for lovely holiday cards. (They do not necessarily need to be Christmas themed, since we can also make cards for The other major holidays happening, or even just general hope themed cards) I'm leaving boxes in the courtyard to gather supplies.  We will be looking for things like:

 

*Card Stock of all colors

*Stickers, Charms, etc 

*glue, glitter, and other adornments

*patterned or textured scrap booking paper

*Gift Cards to buy supplies

 

Any other crafting/scrap booking supplies that could be used for beautiful cards!  Here's the link to their website, to learn more: http://www.cardsforhospitalizedkids.com/

 

I will leave a sign-up sheet on the whiteboard. I'm looking forward to seeing you all there!
