Alumni Service Event Wrap-up

The Portland Alumni Chapter service event went very well. Alumni gave of their time, Portland Public Schools saved some bucks, and local school children will have better-looking classrooms to sit in this Fall. Hopefully, above all, Jesus was glorified and His message communicated to those who needed it.

Once again, the Kigali Kollection surpassed its set goal, with 6,534 books collected by May 15. The goal of 5,000 books was reached 13 days before the deadline.

New Goal

The new goal is to have 10,000 books collected by December 18. Apart from books, the Kigali Kollection is also collecting journals (not included in the book count).  Presently, 707 journals have been collected.

Keep Donating

Now that we have come to the end of the semester, you may have books in your possession that you may never use again. So donate, donate, donate! Send your books over to Debbie Chin or Dr. Garry Friesen who are both located in Sutcliffe Hall.

Kollection Was So Successful That...logo_0001

The Kigali Committee is now doubling its goal in hopes of collecting different Bible, theology, and Christian books by May 15, 2009 for the largest theological library in Rwanda. After much prayer, the committee decided that the goal should be "Double or Everything," renaming the drive the "Kigali-Kigali Kollection." The committee is praying toward another miracle of receiving a doubled portion of 4,018 books by the set date. If the "Double" goal is met before graduation, then the new goal will be 5,000!

4 Ways To Participate

  1. Book Donator: Each student donates TWO books; each faculty donates FOUR (or more).
  2. Book Kollector: The committee needs 24 collectors who will be the point person at their churches to get book donations.
  3. Book Recorder: The committee needs 25 people to record books for a minimum of 2 hours. Volunteers will be paid $10/hr (Priority goes to those who have already donated hours previously).
  4. Finance Giver: Give $1 at each SWOT chapel; give a one-time offering; or be a Buck-One-Book giver (BOB).
