Donations and volunteers needed!
Duffels for Kids, support for children in crisis through Faith Hope & Love
Children entering the foster care system are often pulled from sometimes dangerous situations with only 5 minutes to gather their things - and they are given a black trash bag to collect their belongings! To ease this transition, Faith Hope & Love provides brand new duffel bags - filled with personal care and comfort items - to various agencies that regularly deal with children in crisis. Duffel bag contents are age-specific, for children age 0-17. Duffel bags for kids include a blanket, stuffed animal, storybook, flashlight, and hygiene items. We are bringing this ministry into Walworth County, where every bag we pack will be used!
We have committed to packing 200 duffel bags at $25 per bag, for a total of $5,000.
At this time, all packing positions have been filled, but donations are still needed! Designate checks "duffel bags."
OneMeal, a food packing program from Kids Around the World
One hundred people per shift will pack meals that will feed poor children. The meals that we pack will be sent to our Haiti partner, Pastor Jephthe, and then distributed to 70 churches and 21 schools, reaching more than 3,000 children in north central Haiti. The meals are a ministry tool, used to bring kids to Christ. Many of these children do not receive proper nutrition - or even a basic meal - before school. With the school feeding program, every child who attends receives a nutritious meal.
We have committed to packing 40,000 meals and raising $10,000 to pay for them.
