women holding buckets and detergent

— Judy Thomson

"On August 12, 2010, members and friends of St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Kilmarnock, Virginia, assembled 50 Clean-Up Buckets for Church World Service.  Those who did the work ranged in age from six to mid-eighties. 

"Prior to assembling the buckets, participants shared a dinner that the children and youth of the church had prepared.  The 'price of admission' for dinner was a contribution toward the cost of the items for the buckets.  The church then enlisted the help of some teenagers from the church to deliver the buckets to CWS' facility in New Windsor, Maryland."

Thank you, Judy Thomson, for sharing your photo and story about dinner with a purpose.
