December Fundraiser and Service Project for King’s Preschool We are going to go ahead and have our service project for December focus on raising donations for Hand In Hand’s Safe Place. For those of you who are not familiar with that organization, they are an organization that provides emergency care for children 12 and under who have been removed from their homes do to neglect/abuse. These kids are often taken quickly from their homes and leave with little or nothing of their own. They are then placed at Safe Place, until their social worker can find them a more permanent foster home. Hand In Hand is always looking for donations, but in December, they also provide food and a free store where families in need can go shop for new clothes and toys to give their children for Christmas.  For our service project we would like to raise these items…

  • NEW Fall/Winter Shoes
  • New Clothes (they get a lot of donations for baby clothes, but they are also in need of larger sizes 10-14)
  • New Elementary Age Toys
  • New and Unopened Diapers
  • $25 dollar gift cards for tweens to iTunes, Amazon, Walmart, Fred Meyer, Target, etc.

Here is a link to their website if you would like to know more. http://handinhandkids.org/#/safe-place
