Children’s Change for Change
How do we raise kind, caring, charity-minded Orthodox youth? By actively involving them in the process! With Children's Change for Change, even the youngest members of our community can take part in charitable works. Following the conclusion of the service on the FIRST SUNDAY OF EVERY MONTH, we ask one family from our AHJ community to hold collection baskets and encourage our parishioners to donate their pocket change in support of Orthodox mission work around the globe. If you're interested in involving your family in this meaningful ministry, contact Leslie Dombalis at firstname.lastname@example.org or Zoe Pusic at email@example.com.
