Do You Have More Than You Know What To Do With?

I have a way for you to help orphan care!

Benton County's The CALL (www.thecallinarkansas.org) is taking donations for a Foster Child Clothes Closet.  The CALL has been busy recruiting Christian foster families to love on our communities most vulnerable children.  God is for sure moving and many families are responding to this CALL.  The CALL doesn't just stop there though.  They desire to wrap around these new Christian foster families with support in any way they can.  They are organizing a clothes closet for these families to use for the foster children they bring into their homes.  Many times the children come to them with literally NOTHING.  The closet will exist to provide for these children's basic necessities.  Here is a list of some of the items they are looking for:

Requested Donations include New or gently-used:
- clothes (from newborn to teen in both genders)
-socks and underwear
-toys and "teen entertainment"
-baby equipment (bottles, diapers, exersaucers, walkers, ect)

The need is enormous! A foster family may have a newborn boy one month and a sixteen year old girl the next. The CALL Foster Child Clothes Closet is JUST starting and they have very little!! They also need: 

storage tubs
rolling clothes racks
laundry soap
portable shelving
monetary donations.

For more information on The CALL please check out this site:

Your donations are tax-deductible as The C.A.L.L. has been granted federal 501(c)3 non-profit organization status.

Are you being CALLED to get involved in a bigger way with the orphans of Benton County? The CALL would be HAPPY to discuss the MANY different ways you can help...from donating clothes to opening your home... and much more in between!

Contact for information on where and how to donate!

You can just give me the donations and I will make sure they get it!
