Packing party that took place on January 17. On that night we sent out 31 boxes to DFCS for the local foster children. It was a fun event! (Click for more pictures)
Every month, children in Stephens County are removed from their homes and enter the foster care system. In most cases, these kids are taken with no notice, often during the night, with only the clothes on their backs and having no idea where they are going.
We want to show these kids, especially in this scary time, that they are loved and have a Heavenly Father that cares.
Grace Fellowship is partnering with Stephens County Sheriff, Randy Shirley to provide each child entering the system with a “Psalm 9:9 Comfort Box”.
Each Comfort Box will be a reusable plastic box containing gender and age appropriate comfort items such as personal care items, toys, snacks, Bible verse coloring pages, and notes to let them know someone is praying for them and thinking of them.
Please consider partnering with us financially to meet this critical need in our county. We estimate each box to cost between $30 to $35 to pack. To give to this ministry, please click the Donate Now button located below. Please make sure to include in the PayPal "add special instructions to the seller" line, Psalm 9:9 boxes. In addition to monetary donations, we will also accept donations of specific items found on the list below. This need will be ongoing as we hope to deliver a box to each and every child that enters the foster care system in Stephens County.
Thank you for considering giving to these most vulnerable citizens in Stephens County.
The following is a list of items needed for the "Psalm 9:9 Comfort Boxes." All items should be new, in their packages. Per DFCS request, we cannot accept any stuffed animals or cloth items for inclusion in the boxes. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how to get these items to us.
