Pine Ridge Dress & Suit Collection
Mar 3 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Prom is a super special time for the youth in Pine Ridge. By donating formal wear to the BEAR Project, we are helping students to look and feel their best. Each year, this program services over 300 students annually from Pine Ridge High School, Red Cloud, Porcupine, Allen, Wounded Knee, and other schools surrounding Pine Ridge. During Prom season, the Bear Program Boutique is open extended hours to accommodate the needs of students attending prom so no student in need will go without. 

Each year, Platte Woods Church partners with the Pine Ridge BEAR Program to collect donations to support their “Yes to the Dress, Woot Woot to the Suit”. If you have prom dresses, suits, or dress clothing in great shape that you would like to donate to teens in Pine Ridge, you can drop it off in the donation rack in the Gathering Space during worship on March 3, 10, and 17.

Saturday GO Serve
Mar 9 all-day

PWUMC has traditionally set aside one Saturday of each month as a day to serve together. Serving together as a church is an amazing opportunity to bless others and be blessed by going out into our community to show the love of Christ in real and tangible ways.

 

Hygiene kits are crucial for promoting health and well-being, especially in communities with limited access to resources like the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. These kits provide essential items like soap, toothpaste, and other hygiene products that have been identified as a need by our partners at the Bear Program.On Saturday, March 9th, you are invited to join others from Platte Woods Church at Senior Living at Burlington Creek to put together hygiene kits for the Bear Program. This opportunity is open to ages 7 and up (with parent participation). If you have questions or would like to sign up, please contact Brandi Molina, our director of Outreach and Mission at bmolina@plattewoodschurch.org or visit our Saturday Go Serve sign-up.

 

If you have questions or concerns about specific volunteer locations, please contact Brandi Molina, Director of Missions.

 

Register for your project below! Volunteers meet at their respective serve location on Saturday morning.
