CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR THE CHILDREN OF JUAREZ
Thank you so much to everyone who has already donated to buy gifts for the 83 children at Centro Victoria. If you sponsored a child last year,there is still time to do so again this year by giving a cash or check donation in the approximate amount you spent on a gift last year. The money will be collected and spent on large gifts that can be enjoyed by all the children. We will be wrapping, packing up and shipping small stocking stuffers for each child on December 11th in Reynolds Hall and we would love some help with this project. Please join us!
