Ladies, we still have some spots let and would love for you to join us!
As Women of Vision our hearts are continually moved by the amazing work of World Vision and the organization's love for "the least of these" all over the world. It is for this reason that we support their work with our prayers, time, talents, education, and our resources. This is also our reason to reach out to those in the Portland area who are experiencing extremely difficult circumstances in their lives. Would you join us in March as we demonstrate God's love by lending our time and talents to those in need? Here are our two events for March:
On March 14th, we will return to the With Love warehouse located in Tigard from 1:40-4:00 pm. With Love is a ministry that supports and honors foster parents and foster kids because within foster families, lives are changed and futures are impacted! This ministry demonstrates love to these families by providing quality clothing and supplies to children ages 0-5.
Our team will be involved in sorting, inspecting, and bundling clothing, making sure each item meets the guidelines for safety and quality. These wonderful, much welcomed bundles will be delivered by With Love volunteers to foster families needing a little extra help. You may find out more about this compassionate ministry by going to www.withloveoregon.org. This is always an enjoyable and fun time for our team!
Then, on Friday, March 29th, we will be returning to The Father's Heart Street Ministry in Oregon City to serve a hot lunch (that we have prepared at home) to the homeless and to anyone in need. This wonderful ministry, a day and warming center, was founded in 1998 with a mission to "share the love of Christ as demonstrated in the Word of God, to transform the lives of hurting, lonely, hopeless, and addicted people, and to be His hands and feet extended in love". In addition to their lunch program, this ministry offers a clothing exchange, showers, hair cuts, computer access, mailing addresses, health screenings, and a prescription service.
We will arrive at 10:30 a.m. (with our food) to get ready for the lunch service that begins at 11:00. We will be serving about 100 guests. We will also be preparing around 60 sack lunches, including sandwiches, that the guests can take with them when they leave AND we will be helping out in their clothing room! Our time there will end by 1:00.
We will send out a detailed email, once the team is formed, with all the pertinent information regarding the menu (most likely a crockpot/casserole main dish, salad, side dish, bread, and beverages) and anything else that is important to know!
It would be a blessing to have you serve with us! Begin your sign-up by scrolling to the bottom of this page. If you experience problems, please contact us!
