December 2016 – So we have been very busy over the holidays with the donation drive for the “Bags of Hope” project, while fostering our 33rd foster child.
With the collaborative effort of many people, especially Tom Weyandt and his neighborhood, donations poured in, and so many newly-placed foster children entered their foster homes over the holiday season with something to call their own.
Friends and family got together on December 13 and completed 45 bags, which were taken to the Anoka County Government Center just before the holidays.
We still have quite a few bags to complete, and because Anoka County is bursting with bags ( a good problem) we will be reaching out to other local counties to make more foster children feel a sense of security when entering their new homes.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this a success. We hope you had an awesome holiday season, and that 2017 will bring you many blessings!
