Foster Friends Update:

For November, BFF is still collecting socks, underwear and pajamas - any child age and size. Fall has fell so we will begin collecting cold weather clothing. Please drop off your donation in the tubs between the office and the prayer center. Thank you for filling a huge need. It may not seem much, but the items you give make life easier for foster care kids and state workers assigned to them. them.
 
December 2016, marks the one year anniversary of the Bethany Foster Friends ministry. Over the past year through the generosity of Bethany members, BFF has improved the lives of children in foster care and those who help them. Items were given to Saint Francis Community Services in Wichita and Kaw Valley Community (KVC) Services in the KC/Lawrence area. We collected 49 hats, mittens and glove sets, coloring books and crayons, and over 41 gently used DVDs. 6 LARGE boxes were filled with assorted toiletries, cosmetics and hair care items. By far the most donated and needed items, socks and underwear, totaled 460. 43 sweat tops and 60 bottoms, 55 assorted shorts, t-shirts and 56 pajama sets were given. Additionally, over 40 back packs and other tote bags were supplied for foster children to use to carry their belongings. Thank you for contributing to the success of this ministry. Your gifts enrich the lives of so many children who through no fault of their own, have to navigate their way through the difficulties, fears and uncertainties of the foster care system. Thank you so much! My God bless you and we pray for your continuing support in the next year and all the years to come.
