Summer Smiles

We are so excited that summer is finally here! With this new season at Curbside we have had so many new volunteers sign up to serve and we are SO thankful! If you happen to see one of our new volunteers make sure to make them feel welcome and connect them to one of our Curbside Staff members or someone wearing a lime green “first time” shirt. We want to get them plugged in!

The month of June is chocked full of excitement. We kicked off our summer in prayer! Our first gathering – Pray For Our Schools was hosted at Dishman McGinnis Elementary. Next, we were off to Parker Bennett Curry Elementary. We count it a privilege to lift up the students and staff in prayer. A big THANKS to all of you who participated. If you are free on Monday mornings, we would love for you to join us for this intentional time of prayer.

Curbside Crew

Joy Jenkins
Parker Bennett & Lee Pointe

Each month we spotlight one of the MANY wonderful volunteers of Curbside. This month, Joy is to be celebrated.

Joy has been serving at Curbside for three years now. Joy has a heart to serve and feed our Curbside kids! One thing she says about feeding is, “feed a child to feed their soul.” If you have ever tasted any of the food Joy has prepared, you will know this is true! It truly is a work of the heart – worship at best.

Her favorite thing about Curbside is seeing the smiles on the kids faces. Joy helped connect us to our feeding program this year which has provided meals for both sites weekly! This has been such a huge blessing and we are so thankful to Joy and all her hard work with getting this program started!

Although, you may not physically see Joy each week, you will see the fruits of her labor at both sites. We couldn’t do what we do without her!

Thanks for all you do Joy, we love you!
