  • Support the Girls:
    • The 12th box of used bras will be sent out in early February, and this is a big one. The women in 3rd world countries who will be able to support their families through resale of these items will be very happy to receive them, because they represent independence and freedom from sex traffickers.
  • Tender Mercies: First Sunday of each month. Has your group served in the past but is now uncomfortable gathering to cook? Here’s an idea for more volunteers to serve from home: 
    • Volunteer group of (home) cooks: 
      • Plan a menu (ex. Lasagna, green beans, rolls) 
      • Each group member agrees to make enough of one food item for 45 meals (ex. rolls), or 23 meals (ex. Lasagna) with another person making the other 23 meals. 
      • Group members individually drop off their ready to eat food at the church at a pre-planned time. 
    • Volunteer servers: 
      • Receive the ready to eat food at the church. 
      • Portion it out for 45 meals. 
      • Deliver it to Tender Mercies.
