HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

You will make our out-of-town, guest families feel welcomed and cared for when they are far away from home. Being able to provide them with a gift card so they can have a cup of coffee or have a warm nice meal makes a big difference!

This activity has both an artistic and a fundraising component.
