Skyline Urban Ministry
Oklahoma City, OK

Poverty
Skyline Urban Ministry is located in the shadow of the prosperous and successful downtown Oklahoma City skyline. Their focus is on those who live in that shadow and on those who live in poverty and need throughout our state. Skyline's goal is to establish an atmosphere of respect and empathy while providing groceries, meals, clothing, eye exams and dignity to Oklahomans struggling with resources.  Their vision is to nurture a new level of compassion and respect for those living on the margins by promoting a change in heart through relationships built by serving shoulder-to-shoulder with one another.

Camp Amanda the Panda
Indianola, IA

Grief/Loss

Camp Amanda the Panda only takes volunteers on Saturday and Sunday, so volunteers will be serving at Central Iowa Shelter & Services Monday and Tuesday of their Fall Break. At Camp Amanda the Panda, children (Kindergarten and above), teens and adults find a place of comfort and support as they connect with others who have experienced the death of a loved one. Together, with the companionship of trained volunteer camp counselors, campers gather to honor, remember, learn, and grow in their grief journey. Campers are grouped with peers their own age and enjoy an overnight at the scenic Camp Wesley Woods in Indianola, Iowa. Amanda the Panda camp counselors and volunteers lead the campers through age-appropriate activities that focus on remembrance and healing.
