Mariner's Church and GHH
bring Valentines cheer tochildren and their families!
Children making cards for their parents
On February 11th, more than
100 children and their families enjoyed a day of arts and crafts together
Volunteers from Mariner's Church helped
the children make Valentines cards for their family members and served
up a hearty meal.
As a special treat, each child was able
to choose a pair of donated pajamas
given by St. Johns Lutheran Church.
Our thanks goes out the many volunteers who made this day special!
Students from St. Johns Lutheran School in Orange hosted a pajama drive for the children living in two local motels. Because of their efforts 103 children are sleeping more warmly this winter.
Sharing the Love
Volunteers from Chinese Baptist Church writing Valentine's
In February, ladies at
Chinese Baptist Church
created beautiful Valentines' gifts for the clients at Grandma's House of Hope transitional shelter.
Each gift was crafted with care, and accompanied by handwritten notes .
In addition, GHH staff was invited to a potluck luncheon to present an overview of our programs.
"The best gifts of all are those that
come from the heart."
To the ladies of Chinese Baptist Church:
Our residents thank you from the
bottom of their hearts!
