Two days later…. life is starting to feel ‘normal’ again
The support was amazing even during a pandemic, thank you!
We are thrilled with the all the donations this year.
Please help us fill our backpacks with these most needed items
I thought I would sleep like a baby after the 18th… but then again why would I think that… my house was still a disaster with stuff all over the place. So I was up again till 2 organizing everything left over according to the organizations I want to give them to. I got some stuff together for underpriviledged families at our church, then a couple of neighbors who are having a very hard time and a bag of used things for the Christian Care Center and then boxes full for St. Vincent de Paul.
Hope In A Bag has donated to St. Vincent from the first year. We know how much the people who use that service suffer because my sister in law does the intake. Next year we will make actual bags for St. Vincent so some of these people can have Christmas gifts too. Most of the things donated from Hope in a Bag will be handed out after Christmas but if we put our heads together we should be able to plan it that the people in need calling St. Vincent, will also have a Christmas gift… even if it is mostly essentials that they need. The same things we have been putting in the back packs. I guess Maybe there was a reason I got my industrial serger back….. Looks like I may be sewing those bags myself. volunteers anyone????
Well to anyone who took the time to read these blogs and look at the pictures… and even more actually went out of your way to donate and support us…. Thank you from the bottom of our heart, God bless you and we hope you have the most wonderful Christmas and a wonderful sense of peace knowing you have made some unfortunate people very happy during this Christmas time.
Merry Christmas from Jesse and Francine and family

Remember as you celebrate…. JESUS… is the REASON for the SEASON
