We spy some amazing Mothers…

Some of our leading loving Mothers have been working with the Charity Organization “Eyes of a Mother” on a continuous Diaper Drive initiative. The organization partnered with Parks Chapel AME and provides essential baby items and other related goods to mothers and babies across Sylmar, Pacoima, and San Fernando. Recently, 2500 diapers were packaged into packs of 22-25 and blessed within the walls of Parks Chapel for the community!

The effort will continue and diaper donations are always welcomed (sizes 2, 3, and 4 are in high demand). Please see Sisters Myrna, Paula, Caroline for more details and to contribute or help assemble ongoing packs. More packages will be distributed at our Community Event on July 29th.

Parks Chapel AME is hosting a Backpack Giveaway and Community Resource Fair. Volunteers are still needed. We anticipate serving 1,000 families this year! This is a momentous time for everyone to be a part of a growing and expanded community now and for years to come!

*As a general note, our email distribution list has been expanded! There are 23 people included here. To prevent those who want limited “reply all – response” emails, we have set distribution to blind copy everyone. Please take it in love and Share!*

God bless and Thank you~

Have an amazing week ~ your voice is heard.
