Accompaniment Team Update: Day 3

By July 6, 2021News, Serve
Yesterday was the first service day for our accompaniment team in Savannah, GA.
Youth participant, Will Niebuhr, shared, “My work group (the Samoas*) volunteered with our host church to help with Operation Christmas Child. We helped a woman, Becky, prepare and assemble shoe boxes full of gifts. Inside we put toys, stuffer animals, coloring books, utensils and soap. We prepared a few hundred boxes and assembled 31 boxes for boys. Around 3:00 pm we were released for showers and free time. Our group went to the Savannah River boardwalk to shop and eat. Some of the shops visited were a souvenir shop and a candy shop with pralines. We ate dinner at a nice seafood restaurant named, Tubbys. After dinner we returned to the church to get ready for the next day.”
The other work group (the Tagalongs*) worked with the City of Savannah helping to paint Miss Pat’s home. They had a great day of work and service and enjoyed a beautiful sunset over the river.
*The work groups are named after Girl Scout cookies because Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of Girl Scouts, started the organization in Savannah.
