Passports ARE required for Caravan 2013. Anyone attending has to have a current passport. Passports are available at El Verano and Sonoma post offices. The post offices have set times to apply for passports. You will need a birth certificate, photo ID and a passport photo (AAA or post office). it is strongly recommended that Caravan participants who need a passport pick up an application, take it home, fill it out, and then return to the Post Office with necessary paperwork and money. Processing passports may take up to 10 weeks. The post offices have an application packet that is very easy to follow. Starting early is important. Here is the link to the USPS website page that briefly describes the initial application steps, if you find that useful. https://www.usps.com/shop/apply-for-a-passport.htm
Fundraisers are a great way to collect donations which help provide supplemental funding for our Caravan Mission Trips. To be successful, we need to have all participants involved. During a fundraising event, the youth need to participate in the announcements, volunteer at information tables, attend the youth group meetings and be involved in planning of skits and creating posters. Here are the following planned fundraisers for the 2013 year.
Car Wash – September 2013
Wreaths – October 2013
Take orders/money- all youth
Buy-a Mile – April 2013
Grocery Store Escrip & SHARES – On going
Encourage family, friends and members of St. Andrew to sign up.
We receive 3-4% of the total amount they spend on groceries.
We raised about $1,000 last year!
We will be keeping track of the hours that youth participate in fundraisers.
We made our goal for Caravan 2012… and Dawne and Jacob held up their end of the bargain! Let’s try again to reach our goal in 2014!
