According to World Vision, around 195,000 Syrian families will need help staying warm and dry this winter. On the evening of December 29, 30 unique individuals, traveling from different areas, gathered in our warehouse with one goal in mind: to be a symbol of hope for these Syrian refugees. In the upcoming months, Giving Children Hope will be sending a container of blankets, hygiene products, and clothing to Syrian refugees in Lebanon. With pallets of clothes to sort and pack into boxes, what would have taken our warehouse staff a day took our army of volunteers just under two hours. Together, they sorted and packed close to three pallets of clothing, which will ultimately provide clothing for 2,000 Syrian refugees. We are incredibly grateful to everyone who attended. It is only through our partnership with our surrounding community members that we have the ability to serve those in need.
Thank you to members of Wilshire Ave Church, members of Christian Life Center, Brandon, Danielle, Kay, Alex, and Sarah for joining us in changing the world!
