Recap from Spruce Up Springfield!

Yesterday was awesome (and so was today)! This is a brief post….getting ready for the Super Bowl 🙂

As I serve out my year long commitment as the HandsOn Jacksonville, Blueprint Alumni Action Team project leader we partnered with the Springfield Preservation and Restoration Council (SPAR) for a community beautification project.

Thanks to all the volunteers who stepped up to give of of their time to make Saturday Special. Nearly 50 people showed up for “Spruce Up Springfield.” Our team of 13 walked 16 blocks along Main Street. We picked up trash and other debris in preparation for the re-opening of Main Street.

Many of them volunteers on our team were taking advantage of the “Give A Day, Get A Disney Day” program.

Above are a few pics from yesterday.

WE DID IT! After three weeks (plus) of online giving from some of you …. the first BAAT project with many community partners is almost done. Online donations of $1,410.00 were received via WeGive at
We also received generous toy donations from HandsOn Jacksonville to help balance the monies received to ensure that every student receives a toy this year. Thanks HOJ!!! The great part of it all is that opposed to each student receiving one gift; every student will receive a bundle of gifts.
Some of the toys were delivered to Carter G. Woodson yesterday. The remaining gifts will be purchased and wrapped today at the school starting at 5:30 PM. Feel free to join us for the big wrapping party 🙂 Woodson is located at 2334 Butler Street, 32209. We’ll have a huge day of giving on Wednesday before the students leave for the holiday break. If you would like to help out please let me know ASAP. The toys will be disbursed between 10 AM and 1:30 PM Wednesday.
Thanks again for all your help!

BAAT Letter.docx (13 KB)

Yesterday, I blogged a little about the complexities of being a part-time church planter. This morning I want to allow you an opportunity to read how I got involved with Hope Woodson. This letter was sent to a group of over 200 people part of a local service organization, Hands On Jacksonville, that I’m serving a year long intern with to lead various community service projects.
Are you involved with any local non-profit organizations? If so, who and in what capacity?
Have a great day, but most importantly go make a difference!
