November 30, 2020 - Giving Tuesday
Join the effort on TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2020
You can provide mattresses, comfortable bedding and other household needs when you give to The Baptist Children’s Village Giving Tuesday campaign. Often children come to the BCV having never had their own bed or pillow or favorite blanket. Many have been sleeping in cars or on park benches. Together we can change that. Give and ask your friends to join you in giving children a safe and cozy place to find rest.
