EUGENE, Ore. — Local schools and churches are teaming up to make a big difference for kids. The First Church of Nazarene was at Cascade Middle School Saturday doing landscaping work and painting classrooms.
This is the third year for the city-wide project known as Project Hope. The project includes a day of clean up and work in schools.
“It’s just a way to show the public, the school children and the teachers involved, the parents that we care about them and we care about our town. We care about our schools,” said Brenda Taylor, Project Hope Spokesperson.
There’re about 40 churches involved this year. Sunday thousands of backpacks full of school supplies will be handed out to children starting at 4 p.m. at Willamette High School.
