On January 20, Justice for All will be visiting Harvest Hands.
Since 1999, Harvest Hands Ministries has touched lives for Christ in Mexico. Harvest Hands Ministries’ vision is to create a loving environment where the poor and destitute people of Mexico may find comfort and solace both physically and spiritually through our various programs with an emphasis on the needs of children. Currently our focus concentrates on the Resplandor De Vida Children’s home located near the City of Juarez, Mexico.
Hoping that First Reformed can collect the following items.
Here's a list of the school supplies RDV needs: pencils, colored markers, colored pencils, crayons, erasers, & pencil sharpeners. Items can be placed in the box by the welcome center! Collection will end January 8, 2023. 😊
