Upcoming opportunities for JustActions

Save the Date: Community Meal on August 1

JustChurch/BCI has been invited to host one of the community meals this summer at Weatherby Park. A number of Youth Serving Agencies (Neighborhood Centers of Johnson County, ICCSD, Iowa City Parks and Rec, Dream City, CommUnity, and UAY) have teamed up to better serve our young people this summer. As we’ve seen on the news and heard all over, young people are struggling in our post (ongoing) Covid world.  With summer, comes a lot of unstructured time and a concern for our most vulnerable young people and communities.  Those orgs have banded together for drop-in programming at Wetherby Park called “Weatherby Nights” (Every Monday from 4-6, food at 5).  There will be a DJ, arts opportunities, double dutch, basketball, football, beat-making, video-games and FOOD!  Food is another aspect of safety and security that changes and can completely fall away when school is out.  And nothing works to build community better than sharing food, fun, and positive adult and peer interactions.

Providing food for this gathering isn’t just about feeding people, it’s about investing in our community and supporting our young people and their families.
