REACH Newsletter -- May, 2019

Summer Service Camp 2019

One month from today, our team will triple in size with the addition of six Summer Service Camp Counselors! Aubree, DeAnna, Madison, Maisha, Rupsa, and Zach will kick off their summer with a week of team building and training before the first of many summer groups arrive. We can’t wait to get to know each of their stories!

Of the 12 groups registered this summer, about half are returning teams. We’re excited to host teams from Charlotte County United Methodist Charge, Bonsack United Methodist Church (UMC), Deep Creek UMC, Great Bridge UMC, Duncan Memorial UMC, Medford UMC, Wilderness Community Church, Leesburg UMC, Crums UMC, Chestnut Memorial UMC, Wesley UMC (Vienna), and Welborne UMC.

We plan on restoring hope, alleviating loneliness, and empowering individuals in Southeast Roanoke this summer by transforming lives, homes, and entire communities. We have a lot to look forward to, including cookouts at the Dale Sisters, countless hours of community service, river games, Action Weekend, stories of new friends, and so much more!

It’s not too late to register to serve with us this summer! Contact Casey Heinlein at to find out how.

Spotlight of the Month 

This month marks Casey Heinlein’s first year working full-time with REACH as the Director of Operations and Community Engagement. Following a successful summer of camp, Casey helped to coordinate Alternative Breaks in the winter and spring. 
She has been instrumental in coordinating 2019’s Summer Service Camp, hiring an experienced team for the summer, and connecting with local organizations to provide service opportunities for our REACHers. She’s helped to establish an up-and-coming internship program for local college students. We have enjoyed having her on our team this past year!
