This is 'The Village' in action.
This photo. Every time it pops up, something catches in my throat. I think back to the day it was taken & of the hundreds of families that were blessed with the gift of Christmas that day... I think of this precious family & the amazing gifts they received. I think of how far they've come over the years since I met them. I'm so proud of all they've accomplished!
This is the family that ignited a fire in my heart. This is the mama that was fighting for the best for her children, despite the odds that were stacked up tall against her. Years ago, seeing her children smile because Christmas found them in their car... the joy & excitement on their tiny faces that night is something that is etched into my memory forever.
This is the family that made us fight to grow 311 faster than wildfire. Even when it feels like the odds are stacked against us, too.
Friends, we have a lot of money to raise by August 1st.
We've been incredibly blessed by so many people and have been given the opportunity to make it this far- we're in the home stretch. The land for our new location is ours, we just need to get a building up in time to host Christmas.
If you'd like to be a part of our Capital Campaign team, send us a message. We'd love for you to join us! We need your prayers- we need everyone to rally around 311 to help make this happen for the children and families in need in our community.
If you feel led, theres a donate button at the bottom of our page. Every dollar counts & is so precious and appreciated as we're working so hard to raise the funding needed in time.
Will you join us? Will you be the village?
