Greetings to all from your Women of Vision in Action team!
Did you know that 1 in 5 children in the US is living in poverty? This is why World Vision has been serving the poor in the US since 1981. Whether working internationally or in the US, World Vision is helping to transform communities to provide richer, fuller lives for children and families. Women of Vision partners with World Vision by helping to support projects in Kenya, Honduras, and with the Syrian Refugee Crisis, and we also follow World Vision's example of working domestically in the US by serving the marginalized and poor in our own community.
On March 24th, please join us as we will be delivering much needed supplies and much loved baked goodies to CityTeam, an organization that shares God's unconditional love with the homeless and poor in their community. Your In Action team will meet up with you to accept your donations at one of our 3 project dropoff locations in the metro area. Immediately afterward we will deliver everything to CityTeam. Specific details on our locations will be sent to you in an email as we get closer to the scheduled date.
Because of the pandemic, Cityteam is in great need of supplies for their homeless clients. Women of Vision is reaching out to help them by providing hygiene kits and baked goods (clothing donations are optional). Here are the needs:
Hygiene Kits - small bars of soap, hand wipes or small hand sanitizer, small toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs, deodorant, disposable razor, wash cloth, bandaids, nail clippers, and chapstick. Put these items in a ziploc bag or baggie. Please get generic items as they will be given to both men and women. If you have large bars of soap to donate, please put them in a separate bag.
Baked Goods (maybe an Easter theme?) - cookies or bars (in a disposable container please). Here's your chance to get baking!
You may do as many hygiene kits as you wish but please limit the baked goods to 2-3 dozen. You can do one or the other or mix it up and do both the hygiene kits and baked goods!
Clothing (optional) - Used or new men's and women's (men's are mostly needed) coats, jeans, sweatshirts, and bath towels.

Please join us in helping our Cityteam friends who are in great need right now.
Serving Christ joyfully together,
