Back to School Store

Back to School Store

When the Metro schools discontinued providing basic school materials to disadvantaged children due to budget constraints, YES began its “Back to School” program to provide pencils, notebooks, paper, workbooks, etc. to children.  Children receive the school supplies and clothing that they desperately need to begin each new school year.

Volunteer Opportunity: organize school supply or clothing drives

Christmas Store

Christmas Store

Every year, YES parents are invited to attend our annual Christmas Store. Each family has the opportunity to select a complete outfit of new clothing and new toys for each child, regardless of how many children are in the home. Each family is also given a large box of groceries, including a ham or turkey for a Christmas dinner, as well as a gift card. Each year over 1,000 underprivileged children are served.

Volunteer Opportunity: organize toy, clothing, or food drives, sponsor an angel, help set-up the store, help work the day of the store, clean-up

Community Awareness/Service

Community Awareness/Service

By exposing our kids to service opportunities, we pray that the kids will grow in compassion and understanding of those areas where they can make the world better.  Our children have participated in organized service projects such as yard work, painting houses and visiting the elderly.  We have taken our teens on trips to do disaster relief.  By fostering within them the desire to serve, we are encouraging them to embody the essence of Christ.

Volunteer Opportunity: help organize a service project for the YES children, chaperone
