Collection for Grace Villa

Grace Villa is a nurturing home and sanctuary for young girls who are orphaned and vulnerable in Uganda. Grace Villa’s mission is to rebuild their young lives by providing these girls with a warm, loving home that fully meets their social, academic, psychological, and spiritual needs. Our Sunday school children will be making cards and collecting small trinkets that we can send in a care package to the girls of Grace Villa. Jewelry making supplies, art supplies, small stuffed animals, and any other fun items that your children would like to pick out for these girls would be greatly appreciated. Items can be brought to the chapel each Sunday in February. For more information about the organization, please visit their website.
