“It’s My Very Own” Bags of Love, a ministry to provide children from birth-17 years old some “comfort” and immediate personal care items of their very own, after being removed from their home through the Department of Children and Family Services.
The ministry started in February 2016.
A group of volunteer women donate their time to come to the church and each one has a preference of what they do to help.
“Some sew the comforters, iron the fabric, cut the fabric, make duffle bags, tie the finished comforter or sew on labels or buttons,” said Janet Tucker, organizer of the ministry.
The meeting times are Monday evenings at the Seventh-day Adventist Church at 2308 East Jayhawk Road from 4-8 pm.
Call Janet Tucker, Chapter President at 620-768-9356 to check if the group is meeting that week.
Funding is provided by the Fort Scott Area Community Foundation.
FSACF serves to fulfill the philanthropic goals that benefit the common good and improve quality of life by providing leadership and programming that is responsive to the interest and needs of the residents of the Fort Scott area.
“Also the Bourbon County Community has been so good to donate from clubs, organizations, to individual’s,” Tucker said. “This mission has been so blessed by a community of giving people.”
