DOMINICAN REPUBLIC MISSION
Since 1995, Tower Hill Church has had a relationship with the Eva M. Russell School in Monte Plata, Dominican Republic. This Christian school provides biblical and secular education, meals, and health care for at-risk children. Tower Hill Church pays for the salaries of the school psychologist and social worker there. The Casa Monte Plata orphanage houses up to 40 children in homelike settings. Many members of Tower Hill sponsor individual children through Kids Alive International – a Christian organization whose mission is to rescue and redeem orphans and at-risk children. Sponsorships provide for children to attend school and/or live in the orphanage. Every fall, Tower Hill runs the Dominican Republic Christmas Child – DRCC project. We ship barrels of Christmas gifts purchased by Tower Hill members for each individual child in the school and orphanage.
Our annual adult mission trip each February focuses on holding a book fair, spending time with the children, taking the 8th graders on a field trip, and supporting the teachers. For the book fair, Tower Hill members contribute to the purchase of appropriate Spanish language books for each child and staff member, and for the school library.
Individuals who go on the mission trip pay for their own airfare and a portion of the meals, lodging, and local transportation. Since 2018 the adult team has operated as a Service Team under the auspices of Kids Alive International. In 2020, we also made a first-time visit to another Kids Alive school in Santo Domingo (MIANCERG) and hope to be able to provide future support for the staff there.

CHURCH WORLD SERVICE
Blanket Drive and Tools for Hope Each year Tower Hill joins in a drive to provide blankets and tools to families in need throughout the world through the organization, Church World Service. On Mother’s Day honor a special woman in your life — a mother, sister or daughter – or on Father’s Day honor a special man in your life — a father, brother, or son — by contributing to these worthy programs.
CROP Walk is the community hunger appeal for Church World Service, working to alleviate hunger here at home and around the world. Red Bank Crop Walk is the largest of all volunteer hunger walks in the country. Tower Hill welcomes help and participation on Walk Day. Contact Kim Smith to get involved.
