YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF ONE FAMILY TODAY
Thanks to this program, as a state taxpayer, you can help NCS provide holiday food to low-income children and families in our community and increase your tax refund. Your 2017 charitable contributions to Legacy Connection means you could receive a Tax Credit of up to $800 for couples filing jointly (up to $400 for single individuals). Also, BHHS Legacy Foundation will provide NCS a dollar-for dollar match of your contribution to its affiliate, Legacy Connection. So, your $400 donation to Legacy Connection means NCS will receive $800. Contact NCS at firstname.lastname@example.org or 602-978-5134 for any questions.
The holiday season is rapidly approaching, which means so is our annual J.B. Sutton (Isaac Schools) Turkey Drive. For eight years, NCS students, staff and families have been blessed with the opportunity to share the light and love of Christ by helping to ensure that over a thousand needy families in five underprivileged schools in south Phoenix have the opportunity to enjoy a stress-free Thanksgiving meal together that otherwise they would not be able to provide. This year, our goal is 1325 meals!
How YOU Can Help
With the continued help of the BHHS Legacy Foundation, we are able to provide a meal that would otherwise not be there. Not only do these Thanksgiving meals provide nourishment physically to families, but they also provide great nourishment, to the soul. These food boxes serve as a sign of hope to those in a broken community. As the NCS community, we are able to partner with Calvario Phoenix to provide within the boxes a CD with the message of the Gospel and an invitation to their church. Calvario Phoenix is a church located in the heart of the Isaac School District and is pastored by NCS parent Greg Johannes. Through this project, both mouths and souls can be fed and lives reached for the Kingdom. This year, the BHHS Legacy Foundation is matching our monetary goal of $20,000, doubling what we raise to a remarkable $40,000. We truly cannot meet this goal without you! We ask that you encourage your students to donate in their classes to this project. While the foundation loves to see parent donations, they truly love seeing the students learn how to give. You can never out give our God! According to Matthew 25:35-40, we are called to feed and clothe the needy. This project is a means by which our student body can come to understand that scriptural principle personally. In the next few days and weeks, you will be learning more about how your family can contribute. Through emails, flyers in Monday folders, and within chapel, our student leadership team will be communicating both the needs and the opportunities. Thank you for your continued and sacrificial support of the students at Northwest Christian. Your continued support year after year is the reason that this project has been successful in the past and today remains a tremendous aspect of the growth available to students at NCS. You are truly helping students become difference makers in our community and our world.
