Family Promise Thank You
Since Family Promise is currently not housing homeless families, the SOAR committee requested monetary donations to purchase Walmart gift cards. The $10.00 and $20.00 gift cards will be given to the participating families and youths to purchase groceries or other necessary items like toiletries or diapers. The total of the members' contributions was $685.00, which far exceeded expectations! Thanks from the SOAR committee and Family Promise's director, Elise Chesson, for your generosity. Thanks also to Jake and Nancy Brown for requesting their family and friends send additional donations to Family Promise in lieu of wedding gifts.
Other items were also donated to homeless families from our members. The Dietrichs donated diapers; and the Showalters donated a large bagful of adorable Boyd's Teddy Bears to be distributed among the children in the Family Promise program.
If you were part of this successful campaign, know that you have had a positive impact on the moms, dads and kids of Family Promise. "God loves a cheerful giver"! 2 Corinthians 9:7
