Simple soup lunch fundraiser raises $1,150 for adoption grants!

Just like the title says, a simple soup lunch fundraiser raises $1,150 for adoption grants! Thanks to our volunteers who cooked pots of soup, set up, cleaned up and served the lunch. We announced at church after our second service that there would be a soup lunch available by donation with all proceeds going towards adoption grants and we had a great response!

If you think about it, everyone has to eat lunch after church and most people will likely spend money on lunch. If they’re going to spend money anyways, most people figure it might as well go to a good cause and enough money was raised for almost half an adoption grant!

Is this something that might work at your church? If it is, please contact us at tamara@southgatechurch.ca and we can help you plan or think up an idea that would work for you. Also, if you would like to do an adoption Sunday at your church, we’d love to help you with ideas or anything else that would be helpful.

If you’re from the Lower Mainland area, we hope you can come to the Christmas Carnival, raising money for adoption grants, this Saturday, November 26 from 11am-4pm at Southgate Church in Langley (#120 – 5501 204th St.). It will be lots of family fun and proceeds go towards helping families adopt.
