VBS Collection - The Yordy family would like to ask for your participation in collecting items for Renault Sunday school program again this year. This ministry is located in the slums of Les Cayes Haiti and serves up to 1400 children every Sunday. These children are the poorest of the poor and struggle to have their daily needs met. Helping these children out by providing gently used clothes and shoes is a great blessing to them. Items suggested:
~ girls and boys clothes size 6 months to size 16.
~ girls and boys shoes, size toddler to adult size 10 (tennis, dress, sandles, flip flops.).
~ Book bags and draw string bags
This collection will take place over vacation bible school week and boxes will be in each entry way. The Yordy's thank you all for the generous donations last year and thank you in advance for assisting in blessing these children again this year.
