School Supplies - Evergreen Vista Neighbors

 

August 12 & 13, 1:00-4:00p | A Benefit For Our Neighbors | Hosted by Reverend Terry Murray and Indira Goins

Please join Reverend Terry and our Office Administrator in providing much needed supplies for our neighbors at Evergreen Vista, a Mercy Housing Community. They've got about 80 kids who can benefit from our generosity. Purchase supplies from the list below and deliver them to Unity of Olympia. Reverend Terry will receive donations on Wednesday August 12th from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Indira will receive donations on Thursday August 13th from 1:00 to 4:00 pm, then deliver them all to Evergreen Vista that afternoon. Please see the following note from Evergreen Vista's Youth Coordinator, Kaiti Krug:
 
"Since most students will be distance learning as the school year begins this fall, we are thinking outside of the box. We've ditched the old school way of distributing school supplies in backpacks and instead want to provide each of our children a "school supply caddy" with basic school necessities listed below. Dollar Tree is a cost effective way to participate in purchasing any of these items. We are appreciative of any support you can provide for Evergreen Vista youth."
 
Here's a tentative list for you to work with along with links for examples (no requirement to purchase from these links). If you would rather, you may also donate to this cause via our donation page by clicking here:

Self Care For Turbulent Times

 
August 16, 10:00a | Special Guest, Karen Drucker
 
Gratitude and being kind to ourselves and others is a spiritual practice that can transform our lives.  How many of us actually do that? In this wacky time we are living in right now are we being truly kind, compassionate and gentle with ourselves, or do we allow our inner critic to get in the way and mentally beat ourselves up? I have to remember that I always have a choice. In my talk we will discuss ways to navigate through this time with compassion and self care. Join us here at 10:00a for this live event!
