In September, the Mission Project will be focused upon meeting some of the needs of Oklahoma’s children and teens who are living in foster care. The agency we are partnering with is Sunbeam Family Services, one of 15 agencies who provide foster care in Oklahoma. They provide ongoing support to foster care families through 24/7 case management, training, and connection to resources. They also provide mental health services to these kids who have often experienced trauma in their lives.
Sunbeam has identified the following needs which we are asking our SFPC family to donate:
Preemie and newborn clothes
6 month clothes
9 month clothes
8 month clothes
Size 2 diapers
If you prefer, you can make a monetary donation which we’ll use to purchase backpacks suitable for teenagers living in foster care. (We hope to have some of our SFPC teenagers help us select the backpacks!)
When we say we are a “mission minded church” it is said with a glad heart for the truth imbedded in those 3 words!
