I wanted to take this time to share a few upcoming events and opportunities happening in our community…
A Youth Mental Health First Aid course will be held on Saturday, October 12th. Just as a reminder, this 8-hour class helps adults who work with youth better understand and respond to developing mental health or substance use challenges that the youth might experience. Additionally, participants learn the Mental Health First Aid Action Plan to guide them in responding effectively to youth experiencing such problems. Please contact Thomas Pletcher at email@example.com for more details.
Career Seeker Support Group provides sharing time with other career seekers and educational information including resumes and interview skills. Meets at Aldersgate United Methodist Church, 7901 W. 21st St N., west of Ridge and south of 21st: every Wednesday, noon-1:00 pm, Fellowship Hall every Thursday evening, 7:00-8:30 pm, Office Staff Work Room. For more information contact Carla Heitman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Project Downtown Neighborhood, a coalition of downtown organizations and congregations, invite you to attend their Trunk-or-Treat event on Sunday, October 27, 2013 from 12:30 pm – 4:00 pm. This free event will give families a chance participate in free food, free costumes for children, a trunk or treat, music and games. Contact Tracey Glover at email@example.com for more details.
Again – thank you for the work that you do to make the community a better place.

Partners for Wichita, In., a faith-based non-profit, is looking for a person to serve as a VISTA volunteer in support of its mission to make peace through partnership.
Medical Loan Closet of Wichita
Here is help with medical equipment on loan, no cost, for people who need it temporarily – while in town for a visit - or for longer for those who need it. Also available for congregations, schools and others to have on-hand. Keep this handy reference – pass the word to those you know. Anyone may be helped — and anyone may donate needed items of all kinds — all sizes of wheelchairs, crutches, canes, risers, commodes, bath benches, and more. Medical Loan Closet works closely with other helping agencies. Phone 200-2005 or 516-2199, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. See website www.mlcwichita.org
