56,634 hours and still counting…

We are in the final hours of LOVE Week 2014 and “Stuff the Truck” is going strong. We are grateful today for the thousands of volunteers who sacrificed and served and bumped up the #WOW factor this LOVE Week.

Thank you for bringing canned goods to the Elevation Worship Live Recording. We just got word from Second Harvest that your gifts added up to 5,378 pounds of food – or enough to feed 100 families for 3-4 days.

We’ve served 56,634 hours (and still counting), with more than 100 partners in close to 1,200 events.
We’ve built homes, fought hunger, refurbished, repainted, and landscaped partner Rescue Missions, YMCA’s, schools, pantries, shelters, offices, housing projects and MORE.
It’s like we crammed an entire year’s worth of outreach into nine days.

Calculating your volunteer hours to $$ saved by our non-profit partners, we’ve given away more than $1.2 million worth of our time!

And somehow, in all its big-ness, LOVE Week is still intensely personal. If you served, you know what we mean. We love hearing your stories. If you’ve yet to share, please do give us your favorite #LOVEWeek moments in the comments section below.

Local businesses donated or gave us discounts on TONS of supplies like bottled water, tools, lumber, food, but it’s YOUR GENEROSITY that really made LOVE Week happen.

If you GIVE to Elevation and you were out there serving – you saw it all.
That’s YOUR paint, YOUR mulch, YOUR party food, YOUR canned goods and tuition for a child to go to camp… God gave us resources to GIVE LOVE AWAY all around us.
These are the kinds of things we pay for with the 12% outreach portion of your tithe.

In advance of #LOVEWeek, we delivered $200k in checks to great partners like Hands on Charlotte, Center for Community Transitions, Rock Hill Dream Center, and Junior Charity League.
Plus we gave to Servants with a Heart and Stop Hunger Now to make 800k+ nutritious meals to feed 2,000 families for a full year.

In addition we’re giving MORE this LOVE Week to… partners like

$60k Water Missions International – to build wells on two continents.
$30k One7
$30k A Child’s Place
$20K Second Harvest
And more to
Crisis Assistance Ministry
CIS Safe Journey
Charlotte Family Housing
Right Moves for Youth

And if you missed out on the #LOVEWeek action, you’ve still got time.

Opportunities to help in the aftermath of LOVEWeek at our warehouse headquarters begin this Tuesday. Serve. Notice that God was here all along. And get your #WOW back.

 

Still time to serve!

We’re in the final stretch of LOVE Week 2014 and we’re just breaking the surface on the incredible impact we will see volunteers make throughout our communities.   If you haven’t joined in on the LOVE Week action, it’s not too late! This weekend at every Elevation location, bring new or gently used items for “Stuff the Truck.” We’ll take your gifts to Crisis Assistance Ministry and other local organizations. Here are a few more opportunities for you to sign up and serve.
