Together We Rise - Foster Care Sweet Cases


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.

We have 120 bags to decorate! Want to help?

Friday - October 9 4:30 -6:30 PM @ Grace Church, Logan

Please join us to decorate the bags for kids in foster care! Kids are welcome to join- but parents, please help them do a nice job so the kids who receive them love their bags. Event will be weather permitting, as we will be setting the tables up outside. Please wear a mask and try to stay socially distanced.

Bags can also be picked up/dropped off for you to decorate in your home and then returned to CBlocal. Contact Katie for more info.

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.

If you are looking for more ways to love people, here are some other organiztions where you can volunteer your time.
