March was River's Birthday month. He collected 2500 full sized toothbrushes!
Each year, the children in this family (River, Stella and Laney) choose something to collect and give away for their birthday month. Also pictured is River's friend William. The children all attend St. Stephen's Episcopal School.
What a BEAUTIFUL way to teach our children the value of giving back!
Thanks River!

📢 We had a difficult start to Lent, but we are trying to pick up where we are able with our outreach projects. Please consider Manna Bags! 📢
Lent is a good time to remember our neighbors in need. Here's a chance for your family to volunteer safely from your home. Every week, the Emergency Aid Coalition(EAC) distributes hundreds of sandwiches plus hygiene bags (with soap, washcloths, etc.) and manna bags (with extra wrapped snacks). We'd like to recruit ~ 10 families to assemble ~ 10 hygiene or manna mags. We'll drop off the supplies at your home and deliver them to the EAC when you're finished. Please contact Mary Johns ([email protected]) if interested or if you have questions. Thank you!
