We received the following information regarding helping children who enter the care of CPS.
Vista Community Church in Temple, Texas is needing assistance with gathering supplies for the FOSTER LOVE DUFFEL BAGS. Many children enter CPS have only the clothes they are wearing. In the past they prepared duffel bags which contained a few personal care and comfort items to help to ease some of the challenges these children are facing. They received reports from the caseworkers that the children were delighted by the special gift of something to call their own.
All of the bags they previously prepared have been distributed and the offices are in need of another supply.
We will be collecting items now, through August 2nd. On that day we will meet at The Vista Community Church to assemble the bags and learn more about these vulnerable little ones. The assembly will take place at 11:00, and they welcome all who are able to join them for preparation of the individual bags.
All donated items should be new.
Below is a list of items they are still in need of:
Shampoo (full-sized bottle)
Body Wash (full-sized bottle)
Toothbrush in a case
Toothpaste (full-sized tube)
Box of Crayons
Coloring/Puzzle Book (Word Search, Sudoku, Etc
Box of Colored Pencils
Email us by August 2 and let us know you have donations to be picked up!
