Project Jump Start
There are over 450 homeless children in Virginia Beach. 400 are still homeless from Hurricane Matthew and the asbestos found in their homes. Project Jump Start will provide them with school supplies, clothes and other necessities.
THEY NEED OUR HELP. Please donate clothing in sizes from pre­school through high school [Size 2 thru XXL). They should be in good condition ... clothes you would send your own children to school in.
We will buy new underwear and socks, and gift certificates for shoes will be supplied by Payless Shoe Store. Students will also be provided with school supplies, snack bags, hygiene products, hair cuts, and hopefully dental check-ups and eye exams.
All of this will happen on August 16, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Corporate Landing Middle School. On August 15th, volunteers age 12 and over are needed to unload trucks and help set up areas. On August 16th, volunteers over age 18 are needed to assist in all areas. A sign up sheet will be in the Narthex.
Not only is this a super opportunity to be of help, it is also a fun day. Times are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., or 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. This is our biggest summer project.

Are You Looking for a Preschool?
Look no further!  All Saints’ hosts a NATO-friendly, half day preschool September through May and has since 1969! Our European, play-based model program is developmentally appropriate for preschool aged children from 2 through kindergarten age. Our five-day Kindergarten Prep program is not only a perfect preparation for Kindergarten, it can also serve as a terrific setting for your age-eligible kindergartener who might not be socially or academically ready for public school Kindergarten just yet. Some children need that extra year! This year we’re adding a Kindergarten Enrichment Program. John B. Dey Kindergarteners come to us in the morning, participate in an enriched kindergarten experience, eat their lunch from home, and board the bus to afternoon kindergarten regardless of the session for which their household is zoned.Two and three-year olds can opt for 2, 3 or five days a week in accordance with your preference and your child’s needs.

Recycling Old Batteries
As part of its process in becoming a Pearl School through Lynnhaven River NOW, the Day School is collecting dead batteries. Any battery will do; even those that do not fit in our container on the stand outside the Day School Office. Used batteries MAY NOT be disposed of through your garbage can or re-cycling bin as they need special handling. There are drop-off centers located within our city, but wouldn't it be easier to simply drop them off here at All Saints'? The Day School thanks you for supporting its efforts!
Full Circle Meals
For a number of Years All Saints’ has participated in the Full Circle Meals Program through ACCESS.Based in Norfolk, ACCESS is AIDS Care for Education and Support Services. Its mission is “to promote the dignity and wellness of adults, families, youth and children impacted by HIV/AIDS through quality support and prevention services so they may live healthy lives.”
Are You Expecting a new arrival in your family?
Please remember to let the church office know when your bundle of joy arrives.  As a parish, we would like to share your delight and commemorate the gift of new life by placing a rose bud on the font in honor of your newest family member.  Mary, or her answering machine, will take your information any time of the day or night at 481-0577.  So add us to the list of “must calls” tucked away in your hospital bag or adoption folder.
