School Kit Update

Sunday, April 26th 2015 6:48 AM

In regard to the funds for packing school kits at Annual Conference we feel it necessary to provide an update.  As of Saturday, April 25 we were only at 20% of our funding goal.  If we plan to pack school kits we are in desperate need of funds.  We ask that you remind others of the need.  We also wish to remind you that donations are to be sent to BCF with a memo of "School Kits"

Thank you!
