COMPASSION BAGS

THIS MONTH’S FOCUS - FOSTER CARE
For the past 22 years we have sponsored Royal Family Kids Camp a place where foster children hear that they matter to God and He loves them. You can help a child have a memorable time at camp by supplying some tangible items: swimming goggles, beach towels, Toiletry kits (shampoo/condition, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, washcloth), sleeping bags. Don't want to shop or would you like to help a child go to camp? Click the donate button and we'll take care of the rest. Please return items by June 1, 2022.

There are many ways you can serve through our four focuses: Royal Family Kids Camp and Mentoring (children ages 7-11), T.R.A.C. camp and mentoring (teens ages 12-15), Brave (girls ages 12-18), and Foster the City (serving our foster families).
