Together We Rise - Foster Care Sweet Cases

dufflebag2

Thank you so much for supporting and loving children in foster care in the past. This is our 5th year doing the Together We Rise Sweet Case fundraiser. We believe that children entering foster care should NOT have to use garbage bags to move their clothing and personal items, as is so often the case.

Every $25 donation you give buys a brand new duffel bag, cozy blanket, teddy bear, coloring book, crayons, and toiletries for a child entering foster care. At the end of the fundraising campaign, we will have a Sweet Case Build Day where we will personally decorate and fill each bag (date TBD, but in May).

These bags will go directly to our local DCP&P office and straight into the hands of children who need some comfort. In the past, we have collected enough money to do between 85 and 100 bags, which is amazing!! Let's try to beat that number this year. Can we do 150? or 200? Please share this campaign and give generously as always!

CBlocal is a group within Crossbridge that organizes our local outreach opportunities.

All of our activities will be in the South Jersey/Philadelphia area and will focus on loving people who are in need- whether they are homeless, foster children, lonely senior citizens, children & adults with special needs, families with financial hardships, or anyone going through a difficult time. Our goal is to embody what it says in John 13:35:

By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
