On Thursday, July 28th, Spreading Joy ventured to South Dakota! We’ve been dreaming about Spreading Joy across America and we are taking steps to do so!
One of our amazing Volunteers Sarah was gracious enough to assemble 400 bags and take time to give them out!
Goody bags filled with coloring books, stickers, and crayons were given to children attending a Feeding South Dakota food giveaway in Vermillion, SD.
While 275 families were waiting in line to receive food, 150 kids received goody bags. Parents had the opportunity to sign their children up to receive a birthday card on their birthday. A total of 20 kids were signed up for the Birthday Club! This brings us up to 81 children that will be receiving birthday cards from us each year!
Seriously….what child doesn’t love receiving mail?
Monthly Donors – thank you for partnering with us to encourage these families. Thank you for helping to purchase stamps, birthday cards and these items that we can give to children who came expecting nothing. Thank you for Spreading Joy to the residents of South Dakota with us and reminding them that there are people in this world who really care and want to encourage them in the midst of their struggles.
Thank you for impacting hearts for a lifetime.
Huge thanks to Sarah for heading up this project. We look forward to encouraging many more families in the months ahead!
Wait? What? You want to help but cannot give monthly? Well that is perfect. We can always use the following in any amount:
- Stickers – Kids LOVE them! (Seriously – go to the Dollar Tree and get several packs!)
- Cute Note pads
- Cello Bags – any kind will do
- Cute Erasers
- Cute pencils
- STAMPS (for mailing cards)
- Birthday Cards for Kids (all ages)
- Self-inking stamps for kids
Thank you for helping in any way possible. While this may seem like a little thing, to these kids this was pretty awesome, and will be a great reminder when their birthday card comes to them in the mail.
Our Mailing is Spreading Joy PO Box 1771 Denver NC 28037
