June 20-25th, the SHYG is away at the Rolling Ridge Retreat Center in North Andover, MA, for their annual service week. Due in part to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the group is staying close to home, and learning about need right here in New England! Throughout the week, the SHYG will be doing conservation work, reviving the center, and serving at homeless shelters in surrounding cities.
Here are some things you can do to support the SHYG throughout the week:
Pray! Pray for our trip—pray for good team dynamics, safety, meaningful connections with the community, and opened eyes and hearts of our teens.
Engage! Watch our Facebook Page for posts from the SHYG, and see what we are doing from afar.
Serve! Have a parallel experience that you can share with the SHYGers when they return—volunteer for SHARE, Anne Marie House, or other food banks or homeless shelters in the area. Help out the Habitat for Humanity Team at CCAmherst. As the World Service Team what they’re up to—pick an activity to do this week, and let your SHYG team know how it went!
