Santa’s Workshop at Casa de Milagros
On Monday, December 22nd, Seton Home will be hosting a Santa’s Workshop for the residents at Casa de Milagros. During this evening, the girls will have the opportunity to shop for gifts for their babies and do some wrapping. Chicktime is hosting the refreshments for this event.
We are looking for volunteers to make cookies and also volunteers to attend, help setup, and serve refreshments or babysit. Chicktime will also be presenting the girls with diaper bags for Christmas! Setup will be at 5:00 and the event starts at 5:30 PM. We will be meeting in the Family Life Center at Seton Home, 1115 Mission Road, San Antonio, TX.
RSVP to Annette Goodson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Leaders Needed for 2014
We are in need of volunteers to lead activities in 2014! Are you passionate about crafts, cooking or baking, photography, or playing an instrument? Chicktime needs you! Think of the difference you can make in the lives of teen girls. We promise you will gain more from the experience than you give.
Please contact our volunteer coordinator, Donnette Tyler, at email@example.com if you are interested in leading or if you have questions about the requirements.
We Give Thanks!
Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus
– 1 Thessalonians 5:18, NIV
This month Chicktime San Antonio did something a little different from the normal monthly activity with the girls at Casa Del Milagros. Every month, chapter leaders are charged with finding someone to be a monthly leader and bring their passion or hobby to share as a gift of encouragement and love to the teens living in this emergency shelter. We give thanks for the opportunity to serve God this way. This month we were asked to join the staff and teens in a potluck Thanksgiving meal and party as a way for them to thank us for being reliable servants and for supporting the work done at this beautiful place.
It was a festive evening and a joy to watch weekend staff mingle with weekday/weeknight staff. Administrators and Directors letting their hair down and taking in what this time of year reminds us to do… Be thankful.
The most remarkable thing was to watch the teen girls sitting around the beautifully decorated tables laughing and visiting just like the rest of us and for those few hours be able to escape the memory of what actually brought them to the shelter in the first place. It was then and there we were reminded the beauty of Chicktime. We offer that safety every month for these precious children, if only for a few hours on a Saturday morning. AMEN!
So today, Chicktime San Antonio, be reminded that our work is sacred. Our work is appreciated and our work is necessary–and please know the leadership team is thankful for you, but most importantly, the girls and staff at Casa Del Milagros are thankful for you.
Holiday Blessings to You!
Annette, Diane and Donnette
Chicktime San Antonio Chapter Leaders
Praise the LORD. Praise God in His sanctuary; praise Him in His mighty heavens. Praise Him for His acts of power; praise Him for His surpassing greatness. Praise Him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise Him with the harp and lyre, praise Him with timbrel and dancing, praise Him with the strings and pipe, praise Him with the clash of cymbals, praise Him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD.
– Psalm 150
