“We just provided some money to give the kids 2 covered spaces to do their laundry (one for boys, one for girls) The kids wash their own laundry by hand – almost daily as they have only 1-2 changes of clothing. Needs connected to this are additional items so they can do laundry – tables, washboards type things (do we even know what those are any more?), etc. In addition, another set of clothing would be great – even if it is just another shirt for the boys and chudi (Indian tunic tops) for the girls. They will be thrilled! There are now 61 kids supported by sponsors so additional financial support for these other items is much appreciated.”
This year, the Christmas collection for Hope Christian School will go toward the Grace Foster Home in Vellore, India. Below is a description of need from a committee member at Georgetown PRC. There will be a collection box in the school kitchen as well as on the church narthex table. [Please make checks payable to Hope Christian School.]
