HEALING HANDS HOSPITAL NICU DRIVE

SUNDAYS IN NOVEMBER

There is a surprising number of new parents who are not able to afford a safe way to bring their new born child home. For the month of November, we are collecting car seats and raising donations for the patients and parents at Texas Children’s Hospital NICU. Our goal is to donate 30 car seats from The Story. Car seats can be expensive, so get together with your chapter or discipleship group to see how many you can donate together! If you would like to help in other ways, help us deliver the car seats to the Hospital on December 4 at 10:30a.
