Missions Moment

Back in December we asked for donations of kids socks as well as food donations to go toward our Shine school partnership with Arroyo Del Oso and the church delivered! Almost 800 pairs of socks were donated and lots of food donations as well. With your generous donations, we were able to provide enough for two teacher appreciation events at Arroyo del Oso, and send home the socks with the kids. This is a great start to our partnership with the school. Thank you to all those who donated, and keep a look out for more opportunities this coming year!
