We're excited to announce our plans for GIVE 2018! This is a special time of year where we, as a church family, go above and beyond our usual ways of giving - in time, resources, prayer, etc - and give back to our community. This year we are partnering with KidsPeace, a local agency serving the foster care community. In working with KidsPeace we have found many ways to support their agency over the next month, which allows for all Living Stoners to get involved! Here are some ways to get involved this Christmas Season:
* DONATE: You can give a monetary gift using the specially marked specially marked envelopes or the GIVE 2018 fund which you can find here. Monetary donations will help offset the costs for behind the scenes items needed for KidsPeace staff, fabric, Christmas Party goodies, etc. Any amount remaining will be donated to the South Bend KidsPeace office where funds will be designated for foster parent resources, training and recognition.
*SHOP: We're collecting the following items for children that enter Foster Care homes. These items are needed for boys and girls in all sizes from baby up to teens! Please stick to the list as these are items requested from KidsPeace. Collection bins will be in the lobby.
- Pajamas - Socks -Underwear -Toothbrushes -Toothpaste -Brush/comb
- Lip balm -Deodorant -Winter Gloves/Hats -School Book Bags
Collection bins can be found in the lobby. Please bring any donated items no later than Wednesday, December 19th.
