Currently, DHS places an average of 25 children into foster care between Lamar & Forrest Counties alone. Each of them has a name, a face, a smile, and a story. Children being placed in foster families need immediate help. Would you be willing to be a part of a their story? Please consider donating items for HOPE BAGS FOR KIDS -- lovingly prepared duffle bags filled with essential and comfort care items. These duffles will be provided to Lamar County DHS, and will be "at the ready" to meet a child's' needs during the traumatic experience of placement.
There are 2 options for donating HOPE BAGS FOR KIDS.
1. Donate online and select "missions".
2. Purchase items for filling a bag (see supply lists below) and drop at Hope's coffee shop on Sundays.
Thank you for your heart of compassion! Please pray for these vulnerable children, their families, their foster families, and for our DHS workers.
