This week, during our Missions presentation, the children attending VBS will be hearing about a ministry that seeks to help children entering foster care, in the name of Jesus.
Little Brown Suitcase Minsitries, based in Berks County, PA provides funds for children in foster care that enable them to participate in sports clubs, dance classes, art classes, music lessons and much more! This ministry has teamed up with Berks County Children and Youth Services to supply pillows and pillow cases to children entering foster care. This seemingly small gesture offers comfort during a very scary and unsure time in the life of a child being placed with a new family.
This year during VBS and through the month of August, we will be helping them by collecting pillows for these children.
Any money sent in this week as your child’s offering for VBS, will be collected to purchase pillows and pillow cases. You can also bring in new, standard sized pillows (in the package) and help to make our pile grow!
