Help us fill 600 BAGS OF HOPE!!
BAGS OF HOPE is an exciting part of our ministry!
Many of you in the Winnipeg area enjoy purchasing specific items we have identified and filling your own bags for us to ship. Some churches have even taken on this project and ship their own bags.
Others out of the Canadian office area make a minimum $30 donation that covers the contents of each bag and to help cover the shipping. As our numbers increase for ministry, we now need over 600 bags each year, so we never have to miss a child.
Bags of Hope that were originally distributed during Christmas programs in early December are now given out throughout the year. Eyes light up as children realize the contents belong to them. Simple everyday items like toothpaste and a toothbrush bring such joy!
BAGS OF HOPE INCLUDE:
Bar Soap /Facecloth
Balloons/Children’s Card Games
Small pencil case/Small notebook or activity book
Scissors/ School glue/ Small toy or stickers
