Power of Money Field Trip

Union Rescue Mission

Power of Money Field Trip to Los Angeles & Union Rescue Mission

Tuesday, December 9th

9am to 8:30pm


Our next class field trip is one week away.  This trip leads into the night, but will open your student’s eyes about how they see money, possessions, and life.

This month we will be learning about the power of money.  We will look at how money can control us if we let greed take over, and how we can take it for granted. Our overall goal is to steer the students to see other ideas about money and how it can be used in powerful, life-changing ways.

First, we will travel to downtown Los Angeles where we can vividly see multiple ideas behind money and its purposes.  During that time we will have lunch in a unique way where students will be split up in groups and will be given a certain amount of money to buy lunch.

We will end our day touring the Union Rescue Mission in Skid Row to see how money can be used powerfully to change lives.  We will also get the opportunity to help out with homeless kids during an open gym time and have dinner with them and their families there at the Union Rescue Mission.  Parents please know the gym and everything we will be doing is inside the secured facility.            

We are in need of at least four drivers for this field trip. The cost for parents and students is $10 and includes lunch and dinner.  Please wear your DRCS shirts on that day.

The permission slip needs to be returned no later than Friday, December 5th

Thank you,


Mr. Thompson
