Our Savior Lutheran Church and School prides itself on Living Love: Love God. Love people. Serve the world. It is much more than a mission: it is our mantra and we strive to incorporate it into every facet of our daily lives.
On Tuesday, October 21st, members of Our Savior Lutheran Church and School’s executive team joined together in a team building service event at Babycycle, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization located in St. Petersburg, dedicated to making sure no child goes without necessities like diapers, wipes, clothing, or food. Our Savior staff spent their time organizing and packaging over 2000 diapers, over 500 wipes, and inventorying food and clothing items.
“We had a great time working together as a team, challenging ourselves. Let’s see if we can bundle another 200 diapers or go through 5 more cases of wipes. It was amazing to see how much we were able to accomplish and it felt good knowing the impact that Babycycle has on our local community and to those in need,” Pastor Paul Burtzlaff said of Our Savior’s afternoon at Babycycle.
Torrie Jasuwan founded Babycycle three years ago after looking for at outlet to donate barely used baby items that her children had outgrown. In addition to grants, corporate sponsorships and community support, the organization relies on donated items such as diapers, wipes, food / formula, toys / furniture, and new clothing. Once received, donated items are sorted and bundled for distribution to local agencies who work with families in need.
Are you looking for a service opportunity to do as a group? There is always plenty to do at Babycycle and volunteers are always needed! Come with your team, your company, and / or your family! Middle school and high school kids are welcome! You will leave knowing you helped families in our community. Our Savior challenges you to beat them in the “Babvcycle Challenge”…how many diapers can your group bundle?
If you are interested in getting involved or volunteering please email Katie Phelps, Babycycle Agency & Volunteer Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Babycycle will unveil a new and updated website very soon- please check babycyclefl.org often for updated information.
