Did you know Revive had it’s biggest sales day yet this March at over $9,700 in just one day!?! God is truly working in this place! That also means Revive could use some help! We need help putting clothing away throughout the store. This would include emptying the dressing room rack and hanging out new clothing in each department. You can work at your own pace and choose the hours you are available to help. Revive also needs volunteer cashiers. We will work with your schedule and make sure you are trained and very comfortable with the cash registers. Any and all ages high school and up are welcome. Come be part of something that’s having a big impact on our community and for our Christian schools! For more information, please contact Revive at 616-662-3375, email@example.com, or fill out a volunteer form online at www.ReviveResale.org or in the store.
Mountaineer Pi Run/Walk: Are you looking for a reason to keep your New Year’s resolution of getting in shape in 2018? Zion Christian School’s Athletic Boosters is sponsoring the Mountaineer Pi Run/Walk on Saturday, April 14, at 9:00a.m. This is a 5K race with a twist: after triumphantly crossing the finish line, participants can enjoy a delicious piece of pie! Why is it called a Pi Run? A 5K is 3.1 miles and pi is the number 3.14. That’s almost the same thing. Basically, we’re looking for any reason to combine running and dessert!
