Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer
Beginning August 1, Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer will begin collecting monetary donations and items to put in 1,000 bags of hope for children in care. On October 20 from 10am-2pm, Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer will host a community project with a goal to provide 1,000 bags to children in foster care in Vanderburgh County, through a collaborative project “Value Every Child.”
Often times children enter into care with little or nothing of their own. Foster families don’t always have ample time to prepare for children that are coming to their homes, nor do they know what they might need. The bags that will be built for “Value Every Child” will contain necessities such as: diapers, wipes and formula for infants, toothbrushes, pajamas, combs, underwear, deodorant and other necessities. Each bag will also contain an age appropriate stuffed animal or blanket to offer comfort during this time of crisis.
Donations to “Value Every Child” can be made by texting LCOR to 77977 and select Value Every Child under “FUND.” Donations can also be made through the following websites: http://theisaiah117project.org/bag-of-hope/ or www.redeemerchurch.org. A list of items being collected can be found on both websites. Items can be dropped off at Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer at 1811 Lincoln Avenue. Donations are tax deductible.
