A Huge Thank You to St. Mathew Lutheran Church in Bel Air, MD
After four years of meeting in a home we needed more space. St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Bel Air, MD, graciously provided the upper floor of their education wing every Wednesday and toward the end, every day along with ample storage.
In appreciation our teams wrote thank you notes (very creative ones) and made a direct donation to the church's food bank which serves local families and families of military personnel with food and housing, and gave the staff a gift for for lunch at The Open Door, a locally owned Bel Air restaurant.
And a huge thank you to all the parents that worked alongside our teams this year.
