Yellowstone Academy and Kids’ Meals Bless Them With Books

January 5 – February 4

The St. Martin’s Mentors at Yellowstone Academy are conducting a book drive for the students as well as the preschool children served by Kids’ Meals and we need your help. Yellowstone Academy is a small, privately-funded Christian school serving about 400 students who live considerably below the poverty line. Kids’ Meals is a meals on wheels program for hungry preschoolers throughout Houston.

  • Book drive – please donate new/like new books for infants through 2ndcheck donations will accepted as well (please write Yellowstone/Kids’ Meals Book Drive in check memo line). Drop off books in the Activity Center collection box or contact email hidden; JavaScript is required. Checks may be mailed or delivered to St. Martin’s c/o Outreach Ministries.

Our main goal is to help develop literacy so crucial to success of these precious children by providing the children their very own books they can have at home. The St. Martin’s 3rd grade Communion Class and the 8th grade Confirmation Class have teamed up to support this outreach project by donating and writing a personal note in the marvelous book  365 Days of Wonder by Palacios for the older Yellowstone students

On Outreach Sunday, March 8, students at the Island will insert bookmarks,  count out books into boxes with Yellowstone class labels and  student count.  The books will be delivered to Yellowstone.

We thank you for your willingness to participation in this meaningful outreach project. We hope it will bless your family as well as the students who receive the books. For more information contact email hidden; JavaScript is required.

Outreach Sunday

Saturday and Sunday, March 7 and 8

These are two “work” days for St. Martin’s parishioners to express our faith in Christ by serving in our community. For 2014, St. Martin’s had nearly 540 parishioners working in partnership with 22 agencies. For 2015, projects are planned around the city and at our Church on both days. We will serve breakfast to our friends at Lord of the Streets (LOTS), serve lunch at The Beacon, Open Door Mission and The Covenant House, make homeless “survival kits,” sew merit badges on our Yellowstone Academy Scouts’ uniforms, package rice and beans for the CCSC Food Pantry, and other family friendly activities.
