Lenten Series: Toxic Charity
March 4 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us for the first of five sessions as we explore toxic charity and when our good deeds to help someone actually hurts them. A 5pm dinner ($5) is followed at 5:30 by an interactive simulation that lets participants take on the roles of members of 26 families, all facing a variety of challenging, but typical, circumstances. Some are homeless, others jobless, and some are suddenly faced with the responsibility of raising grandchildren. In addition, about 20 volunteers play roles of resource providers and businesses in the simulated community.
This is a public event and everyone is welcome. Childcare will be provided.
