Thank you Angels for all you have done for our kids who are in our Friends of the Children Mentoring Program. The Backpacks, School Supplies, Uniforms and other requested items is so appreciated by each and every one of the mentors and leaders who are a part of the Friends of the Children program. The Angels are the gift to us that keeps on giving! WE are so blessed.

This has been a very busy summer for the Angels, even during our break, so to keep everyone in the loop, here is some amazing news…. ENJOY!
The Angels never stop working! Over the summer we have done so many wonderful things to assist the children we advocate for 24/7. Their needs never stop and neither do we. Over the summer we have restocked our Resource Center several times with items like, Diapers, Formula, Clothing, Hygiene Items, Shoes, Socks, Baby Monitors, Car Seats, Pac N Plays, Strollers and the list goes on.
Thank You Angels for sprinkling your magic Angel Dust on our kids once again. Thank you for all the help you give us all year long, but especially around this time of the year. Backpacks, School Supplies and Uniforms are in such demand and as always the Angels bring magic to these children’s lives and give them Hope for a better tomorrow.
We are so grateful for all you do for our kids….
Directions for Living
Thank you to Bridgepoint Church Angels for putting together a Diaper Drive for our Resource Center. We now have boxes of diapers in all sizes for our kids. The daily request for items from the Angels is at an all-time high and it is only thanks to Angels like each of you that we can make a difference in the lives of these children. Thank you Jessica Young for putting this effort together and making it happen. Thank you Jill Griffith and Timothy Thomas for your very generous donation. It is so appreciated.
Thank you for choosing the Angels!
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for ALL the Diapers in ALL different sizes! We have some Angels who step right up when a request is made and within a day, I am picking up items that are in high demand! Thanks to Jessica Young and her amazing group of ladies from Bridgepoint Church, we have diapers galore in our Resource Room… It is AMAZING, and if any of you have purchased diapers lately, you know the price of a box of diapers. My car was overflowing with diapers in every size.
Thank you Wonderful and Giving Ladies for making this happen! You are Amazing….
Dear Angels, We can use your help! Uniforms, Backpacks, and School Supplies are in desperate need for the children in the foster care system. While you are out and about, if you could pick up a uniform or two for a boy or girl or both, it would be very appreciated. Almost all of the public schools for elementary age children require them to be dressed and ready for their first day of school which is just around the corner. Without a uniform, these children are NOT permitted to start school. This is very sad since these children have already suffered enough so
LET’S HELP PUT A SMILE ON THEIR FACES….
