Like so many people, you may be feeling helpless with all that is happening in Ukraine. We have been praying, but for many, we also want to act! We want to do something.
Our denomination has boots on the ground and has been working in Ukraine, but also with refugees who have fled the country. They are in need of basic supplies. We are going to collect, organize, pack, and send what are called Crisis Care Kits. These kits contain a few essential items for families in need.
Our goal is to collect enough supplies to pack 600 kits, which translates to 100 boxes being sent from our church. VNC has always been, and will continue to be, a people who responds to a need.
Please take an opportunity to look through the list below and purchase some or all of the items listed. You can also order supplies online from our Amazon Wish List and have them shipped directly to the church. Supplies must be brought to the church no later than Wednesday, April 27. They will be sorted, packed, and delivered to our District Assembly where the rest of our district will bring their Crisis Care Kits.
