Remember how excited you were when you were little and you got a new set of clothes? Well today our team took 20 kids from Rescue & Restore home to pick out a set of new clothes at the store. The R&R; kids have all been rescued from a life on the streets, and placed in a loving home where they have a family that loves them, a good school to attend and the support they need to overcome the difficulties from their past.
Thanks to the donations collected by our Norwegian friends we purchased each one a new outfit. I don’t think some of these kids have ever gone shopping for themselves. It was a little chaotic, but there was joy on their faces as they thanked us for the gift of clothes. We’ll be going to the Rescue & Restore home tomorrow night, where the kids are going to dress up in their new duds. Look for the pictures on Friday’s blog!
