Beginning in 2003, the Wannabees teams have been involved in communities all throughout Ohio and Indiana. Even with our international missions starting up in 2009, it has continued to be our goal to assist families in our area. We serve our local community by providing financial assistance to local organizations and those in need, distributing annual Christmas baskets, caring for families after disasters such as house fires, and sponsering local sports teams and organizations.
Each year, the Wannabees organize Christmas baskets. These "baskets" are filled with food, toiletries, toys, cleaning supplies, and other necessities. Then, they are delivered to local families who need assistance.
We host an online bible study that meets three weeks in a row. The fourth week, we will have a service project! Our goal is to become more like Christ and not to get “stuck” or too comfortable inside our walls. Let’s “Go” as Jesus asked us to do. We hope service becomes second nature to all of us. We will have planned service projects, but you are also encouraged to look around your neighborhood and communities.
Since June of 2019, the Wannabees have worked alongside Urban 7 Ministries in the Englewood community on the south side of Chicago. Our mission is to build relationships in order to restore communities, families, churches, and neighbors. We are excited to continue this mission work in the following years. Learn more at Urban7.org
