Once again we are volunteering in person. Approximately 200+ children are served a healthy meal each week. Contributions to the Coalition are needed to purchase the groceries for these meals.

  • Sew Much Love

    The mission of Sew Much Love, a small group which uses donated cotton fabric and trims to make dresses and pants for children in far-away villages. These special items of clothing are sent to Little Dresses for Africa, a non-profit Christian organization which distributes them throughout the world but primarily in Africa through missionaries and aid workers as gifts for building relationships in the villages. The original goal for Little Dresses for Africa was to build a sense of hope and worth in little girls who are not valued in their culture. Not wanting to leave out the little boys, we also sew “britches” for the boys. After relationships are established Little Dresses for Africa works with the people in the village to provide clean water, primary education and community buildings.
