As part of our holiday giving, Three Grains of Rice Missions hosted a children’s party for children (and parents) staying at the shelters as well as low-income/at risk youth. In addition to dinner and desert, everyone had a chance to participate in two craft projects. Each child received a gift, a new book and a healthy snack bag to take with them. Fun was had by all!
The children staying at the homeless shelter over Christmas don’t usually get a visit from Santa but they did this year. A Santa Sack filled with gifts for each child was left in their room for Christmas morning.
With the help of a lot of donations and several volunteers, we were able to make over 200 mens gift bags and over 400 womens gift bags for the homeless and those enrolled in recovery programs through the shelters.
