77 Power Packs Made; Many Thanks to Zumba, CCUMC Families!

Last Sunday after worship, CCUMC children (grades 1-5) organized and led a “highly efficient assembly system” for making 77 Power Packs for fellow school children who attend nearby Fairfax County schools. In the process, our children have helped feed other children who depend on school meal programs for their weekday meals, and who need the Power Packs to tide them over the weekend until Monday morning’s school breakfast. Although Northern Virginia is considered one of the most affluent areas in the nation, we still face a poverty rate of 5 percent in our community, of which 30 percent are children.

Big thanks go out to our Zumba friends and neighbors for donating much of the supplies that went into the Power Packs and also the 15 children and the seven adults who assembled the packs. Together, they exemplify the wonderful practice of extravagant generosity!

If you would like to help, join us for another Power Packs assembly in May. For more information about the Power Packs Program (P3) visit the Food for Others website: http://www.foodforothers.org.

Summer Workshops with Writopia Lab

Writopia Lab will be offering a variety of workshops this summer at Christ Crossman. Check them out:


Writopia Featured on Voice of America

A few weeks ago, we had an exciting day here at the Tenleytown location of Writopia Lab DC: journalist Faiza El Masry and a camera crew from Voice of America (VOA) visited our after-school workshops to document the magic that happens when our young writers gather together.

VOA broadcasts all over the world as the official media outreach of the U.S. government. This means that people from Europe to East Asia to Africa to the Middle East have seen our awesome writers in action!

The video is now ready to view on the VOA website — and we’d love to share it with you. Click here to check it out, and do help us spread the word! This is a great chance to share Writopia with your schools, friends, neighbors, etc.

We’re so excited that VOA has broadcast Writopia Lab to the world. We’re proud of our young writers, and we’re grateful to you, as always, for your tremendous support of our program!

Thanks for watching, and keep writing. 🙂
