Live Oak Church raises money for families
Twenty-one families receive donations
–Families and students at the Arts Academy at Bauer Speck Elementary School in the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District have received some holiday help thanks to the parishioners of Live Oak Church. Nearly $2000 was raised to purchase gift cards for 21 families at the school.
The project began as an idea among Pastor John Kaiser, his son, J.D., and first grade teacher, Laura Dawley. Says Dawley, “We’re happy to know that we’re helping the community and also the families so close to us.” Live Oak Church is located just two blocks away from the school.
Church members started gathering donations about two weeks ago. In that short time, they raised almost $2000. Gift cards to Walmart, Food 4 Less, and Smart & Final were put into gift bags along with toys for the children. The gift bags are being distributed before Christmas.
PRJUSD would like to thank Live Oak Church for their generosity during this holiday season. PRJUSD is always looking for community partners. If interested in partnering with PRJUSD for any future events or activities, please contact the district office at (805) 769-1000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
