Can You Be a Blessing?

Once upon a time long ago, a baby was born in a manger. He didn’t have a real place to live, any belongings or anywhere safe to go. He was blessed by strangers and the kind people in his land who found him a safe place to live and brought him gifts. Could you be that blessing too?

Children in foster care aren’t that blessed. They travel from place to place, not always knowing where they will land and the possessions they do own, are usually in garbage bags. We wanted to help change that. We were blessed. We are teaming up with Country Financial to receive donations for children in care.

Items needed for children:
Toothbrushes for babies to teens
NEW underwear and socks for babies to teens
Crayons/activity books for all ages
Body wash and/or baby wash
Feminine products
Deodorant
Small notebooks
Gently used or new bags
Duffel bags
Backpacks
Drawstrings

Donations will be accepted December 3rd to December 20th, 2018, Monday through Friday. Donations can be dropped off at two locations.

Advocacy Network for Children
1420 Harrison Quincy, IL 62301

and

John Hibbert at Country Financial
206 South Ohio Camp Point, IL 62320

Donate and your name will be entered for a chance to win a holiday gift basket.

CASA Volunteers Join Us!

Double wonderful news at the Advocacy Network for Children! Twenty new CASA Volunteers from Hancock County and Adams County were sworn in during the month of October. Twenty! So unbelievable that when we put out the call for help, our calls are answered by people with generous hearts. We are so thankful for them. If you see them going about their daily lives, remember, you are looking at super heroes. At least, we think so.
