Ambassadors for Children

We have had a special request from one of our caseworkers… A biological family ( who’s child is at risk for going in to foster care) has asked for us to help pay for lodging costs while their child is a patient at St. Louis children’s hospital. The Ronald McDonald house is full and they are staying at the Haven House which is $40 a night.   The child is expected to be hospitalized for at least 2 weeks.  If you can donate toward this cause, please mark your donation with ambassadors for children and put it in the collection plate on Sunday, or message Becky Solari if you have any questions or need to donate a different way.

Thank you so much!
