Donations for Tarrant County Foster Parent’s Association
We are actively working with the Tarrant County Foster Children’s group. They meet at our church the 1st Saturday of each month to assist and train foster parents. We feel it is a very worthwhile mission to be involved with. We make children's quilts, receiving blankets, sundresses and matching shorts, pillowcases etc., a list of donated items is listed below. They have expressed gratitude for the gifts that we have given them.
We started working with them in February, and this will be an ongoing project. If you would like to be a part of this mission project please contact Nancy Sandberg 817-217-6865 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We would welcome anyone who would be willing to sew these simple projects at home. Materials are furnished.
If you have any children's clothing, gently used, ages infant to 12 years of age, please share them with these little children. If you have any pieces of flannel or children's printed cotton, would you consider donating them to us. We will make the items listed below for the children. Please put the items you bring in a bag and mark my name on it and place it in the WELCA box in the Narthex across from the office. Thank you!!!
