Giving to the Children

The CHFC is in the process of asking the local churches to choose a month and an item and to be faithful in meeting that pledge.

These items are a constant need, so please let the CHFC know when your church has chosen an item so they can seek others to meet the balance of needs.

Laundry soap. dryer sheets, bleach, household cleaning items and personal items.

Please contact Linda for these pledges and more needs that need to be met 352-326-2699.
