Christmas Mission Trip December 11-18
We go on Christmas Mission Trips to Eastern Kentucky and Virginia. We also serve our local needy, Homeless and Nursing Homes with Christmas bags, gifts, food, clothes, shoes and necessities. We have hundreds of groups and individuals who donate. We have teams that go on the Mission Trips in trucks and trailers.
We are now using gallon ziplock bags for the Christmas Gift and Clothes bags. We averaged about 2,300 gifts for 2015 Easter Trip with this system. Of course, Bryan’s new bin method helped with keeping them organized for us. This method not only will help us out tremendously, but will save each of you money.
We have hundreds of pictures in our Photo Albums, please browse too see all the joy your gifts and donations bring. Pictures of the groups doing food and toy drives. Also join us on Facebook for all the latest news and trips. Lots of pictures on Facebook also.
