2 Corinthians 9:7 says “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
Our community is living out this verse in their support of The Twig. We have had several groups within our community run very successful collection drives for The Twig recently. We see the joy it is bringing to these groups knowing they are helping bless the lives of children in foster care. They are running collection drives and cheerfully giving to us. We love when groups come up with ideas that they know their members will enjoy. I would like to share a few examples of these with you.
The grandmoms of Venetian Falls collected board books for babies and toddlers
Davita Dialysis collected pajamas
Grace Preschool collected pajamas
St Marks Preschool held a book drive
Venetian Falls collected 6 bins of clothing and shoes
The Bridge Church held a pajama drive
Foundation Church of Englewood purchased underwear and action bibles with their Sunday School collection.
These are just a few examples of the ways the local church and community are supporting the Twig in our mission to encourage and inspire the lives of children in foster care by meeting their needs. My hope is this will inspire you to find a purpose for your group to be cheerful givers. If you have an idea for your church or social group to start a collection for us please reach out to me at (941)212-3326 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Blessed to be a Blessing,
Director of Development
