As a volunteer organization we thrive by your support and generosity, and there are many ways to help. If you have the time, talent, or means for anything on our list, please text or message us through our Facebook page (link at the bottom).
We thank all sponsors in our monthly-meeting welcome packet and in our monthly Community Angels shout-out on Facebook.
We provide patterns and materials for the sewing projects, all materials for building the welcome packets, and all items for the kits. For the most part, we just need hands :)
If your church or organization needs an Acts of Service idea for this year, we would be grateful if you kept one of our projects in mind!
