Past Missions Projects:

End 68 Hours of Hunger

The Mission Team would like to thank everyone who donated food to the End 68 Hours Collection. End 68 Hours of Hunger collects food and donates it to students who may not be getting adequate meals on the weekend.  68 hours refers to the time between the last school lunch served on Friday and the first breakfast served on Monday morning. They are currently serving 203 students in our local Willoughby-Eastlake, Mentor and Painesville districts, including 20 students here at Royalview.

We collected:  152 cans of tuna, 132 cans/cups of fruit

assorted other boxes of cereal, soup, peanut butter and boxes of Macaroni and Cheese

Care Packages to Troops

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who donated to our collection for care packages.  We were able to send 11 boxes packed with Gatorade, granola bars, trail mix, sports magazines, and baby wipes to troops currently stationed in Afghanistan!  

Mission Trip 

Several of our youth will be partnering with youth from Hope Ridge United Methodist for a week long mission trip in Tennessee. The Jubilee Project focuses on combining  home repair and water projects to provide complete indoor plumbing and toilet facilities.
