Every time I put together a group of Care Bags❀,
I record the number of each item used,
what I need to replenish my supplies,
and the total to date.
I was surprised to see that I had reached
205 Care Bags❀. Wow! That tells me,
that 205 young girls have been helped by this project.
While I am very aware that we are providing
something necessary and greatly appreciated,
I also feel a sense of sadness that the need continues.
In fact, it seems to grow but
so does the help I receive from Adelphoi.
They have been incredibly supportive and recently put out
a press release highlighting our Care Bags❀ project.
I couldn’t be more proud.
Over the past year, Adelphoi has also
provided me with some much needed storage space
in one of their facilities. Not only did it
give me the opportunity to move a large amount
of inventory out of my home,
but I was able to create a more organized, efficient,
and less labor intense work area.
This new Care Bags❀ storage space is also located
closer to the Adelphoi girls homes
which makes distribution much more convenient.
Two weeks ago, I received a thank-you note
from one of the girls who received a Care Bag.
I haven’t met her yet, but I feel as though
I already know her. Her words were sincere, sweet,
and extremely appreciative. Just knowing that
this bag of ‘things’ made her feel special and loved,
makes it all worthwhile.
~I also want to thank everyone who has donated to this cause.
It is truly appreciated. ♡
