Wellspringers, We Need Your Help!
We’ve got a special opportunity!
Wellspringers, we need your help!
As many of you know, there is an annual opportunity to make a big impact on many lives in New Britain. It happens the Saturday after Memorial Day (this year it’s June 4th) and is called Celebrate Mount Pleasant. This is our 8th year and it’s quickly approaching, so save the date.
For those of you who may not have heard of this event, it is a day when Wellspring teams up with the New Britain Housing Authority and the residents of Mount Pleasant, a low income community, to beautify the community, have a time of fellowship and to let God’s love shine through our service. In past years we have planted flowers, built garden beds, painted murals and so much more.
Last year we had a new door open in this community, quite literally. We call this Mini Makeovers. We’ve been given the opportunity to go into families homes, at their request, to help them do a little interior design and fill some of their more pressing needs. It’s a great time to interact with the families of Mount Pleasant and bless them with some much needed items. Last year we saw everything from mini gardens, new mattresses, furniture, paintings, wall decorations and much, much more. The simple act of fixing up a home has had a lasting impact on both the residents and the volunteers.
This year we are responding again to the needs of the residents and we need your help!
We are looking for teams of 5-6 people each with one contact person, or leader, to visit a given family. The leader will address the needs/wants of the residents, then work with their small team to best meet them. It’s a great time to meet a new family and start building a relationship. There is no experience required, with the exception of a loving heart and a desire to bless a family in need.
So, if you’re looking to be blessed while blessing another, let us know as soon as possible. We are planning to complete 15 Mini Makeovers this year and we need your help to do that. Celebrate Mount Pleasant is Saturday, June 4th, and we are so looking forward to seeing God blessing the ones He loves through our service!

Looking forward to hearing from you!
