Thank you so much for your support!

Each major event we do, like the ones listed above, generally take a year in advance to get ready. For example, we receive school supplies, Christmas toys, and Thanksgiving food all year long, setting it aside until “the day” arrives.

As you may know, it isn’t at all unusual to have groups sorting and moving Christmas toys in the summer months, because that’s just what it takes to get ready. We work all year long on each holiday event.

So, we can do all of these things to help people in our community, because of your generosity and the faithful way you provide finances, food, Christmas toys, school supplies, and so much more. We are so grateful for you!

Your prayers make a difference, and we appreciate not just the way you give your time when you volunteer, but also the opportunity to work alongside of you day by day. You make it EASY to care for people. Thank you. To God be the glory!
