Individuals who wish to contribute to
Heifer International should give their

Beginning in November, containers will
be placed on luncheon tables to collect
change for C.A.S.A. In addition,
zippered duffel bags and small items
such as coloring books and crayons or
puzzle books are being collected for
children in the C.A.S.A program.
|“Days for Girls”
Because girls in foreign countries can not
get supplies or education to understand
about their menstrual care and cycles,
they miss school every month and lose a
lot of time. By donating items such as
dark-colored washcloths, panties and
small bars of soap, we can make a
difference in someone's life. Please see
Susan Koye for more information.
Operation SMILE is an organization that works
globally to provide surgeries for those born with cleft
lip and/or cleft palate. Children's hospital-type gowns
and arm splints are among the items needed on an
ongoing basis. Please see Barbara Hunt if you would
like to help make these items or can donate supplies.
