We are grateful to our donors. Because of your generosity, we are able to clothe the children we serve for free, and with dignity. Because our list might have changed, please look often. Keep in mind we have approximately 50-100 bags donated each a week and we are hoping you check out our list below and help our volunteers.
You keep us actively serving in our community and for that we value your time as you sort through your donations and pray for our children prior to coming.
