Bread and Life Baby Shower Fundraising Event
June 29th, 2012 from 3Pm to 6PM - Visit our Registry at Babies "R" Us
This is a fundraising event for those families of our community in need. On behalf of those families you are about to assist, we thank you. Gift cards are most welcomed. With cuts in benefits and our declining economy, we are noticing a higher utilization rate amongst those already registered with our organization. Last year people had a better chance of stabilizing themselves after using our services; this year we have noticed an influx in return visits. We are rapidly running out of toiletries and infant essentials. Organizations that assisted with these services are also reducing the number of sites they link with due to the lack of resources, thus decreasing our referrals.
In an effort to continue servicing the need of the community, we are conducting a Fundraiser Event for Baby Essentials. We ask that you please consider any form of contribution. This effort is graciously accepted. Thanks again from the staff of SJBL.get in shape and burn calories, while helping to raise money for a charitable cause!
