Caring for Women in Missions
What is Gifts to Go?
Did you know that women who return from the missions field (whether state-side or abroad), usually give away most or all of their home goods prior to leaving? Thus, when they return they have to “restock” again. While they are thankful for the donations given, sometimes they don’t get an opportunity to pick out what they desire or like. We would like to bless such women and show them our love and support by giving them an opportunity to “shop” from our Gifts to Go shelves. The closet has been established in a private home where female missionaries can go and shop for free! We need your help in stocking the shelves; all we ask is that the items be brand new.
Please contact Paula Lininger to make arrangements for drop-off of your much-appreciated donations.
