As we all know CHRISTmas is right around the corner and Building Bridges Hand In Hand is busier than ever. We have added SO many CHRISTmas events to our calendar, and these events will not be possible without your help. For more detailed information, head over to our website www.bbhih.org. There you will be able to sign up to volunteer, donate, and just get more familiar with what we have done in the past and what our future events hold. Thank you all again.
On November 17,2018, We will be holding our FIRST ever CHRISTmas at Harmony House. Harmony House is a domestic abuse shelter that helps women who are SURVIVORS of domestic abuse, get back on their feet. They provide so many resources to these woman and their children. This year, we have teamed up with Harmony House for quarterly birthday parties. So we at BBHIH decided, why not give them a CHRISTmas event that they are sure to remember! We are going to be doing CHRISTmas crafts, giving away prizes, making “goodie” bags for the kiddos, doing a meet and greet with Santa and so much more. We are in need of someone who would like to dress up as Mr. Clause and doing a photo shoot with the women and children. Due to this being a domestic abuse shelter, this is a female only volunteer event. HOWEVER, Santa Clause can be played by a male volunteer due to being in the suit. To volunteer or donate to this event, email Cherie Rowden at [email protected] or at 417-430-6421. Thank you all so much.
