Each year since 2008, Impact PCG Student Ministries has hosted a mission trip to the Appalachia region, bringing hope and sharing the true meaning of Christmas to a region of our country that is desperately in need. Our first trip in 2008 began with one community in Hazel Green, Kentucky and 19
participants. Since then, Impact Appalachia had spread to four communities: Hazel Green, KY; Boonville, KY; Craigsville, VA; Pineville, WV and had over 200+ participants not including local volunteers!
With the joint partnership of National Missions, Empowered Women’s Ministries, and Churches around the nation, Impact has been able to provide and deliver food boxes, personal care items, blankets, coats, hats, gloves, books, bicycles, and coats for 800 families each year in the Appalachia region.
On the first Saturday in December, four schools open their doors for their students and their immediate family members to enjoy a two-hour program which delivers love, laughter, and a message of hope. Before each student leaves, they receive a wrapped gift and numerous items that fill their personal treasure bag for them to take home and enjoy. In two communities, we host a free Chili-fest for the community and provide gifts for the local residents that attend, as well following the school program.
This is a great trip for families, youth groups, leaders and people of ages to experience. We would be honored to have you join us.
