"If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion -- how can God's love be in that person?" I John 3:17
There are so many ways we can help our brothers and sisters in need. But more than that, there are so many wonderful reasons to in fact do so. Remember what the Lord told us in the book of Matthew... "The King will reply, 'Truly, I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." (Matthew 25:40). When we give to others, we are reflecting Christ's visage. But make no mistake from the passage in Matthew, helping our Haven families provides a chance for us to see Christ's face as well. We give out of thanks for Christ's sacrifice!
HELPING HAVEN BY SPONSORING A FAMILY: The Haven Project has identified specific families who have needs and wants at Christmas time that the family is unable to fulfill on their own. Should you decide to sponsor a family, you would receive from Haven a detailed list specifying (a) the number of adults and children in the family (b) their ages (c) what their needs are (d) what their wants are. You would shop for this sponsored family specifically and provide items based off of the paperwork they filled out for Haven. Any identifying information about the Haven family is completely confidential.
HELPING HAVEN BY PROVIDING ITEMS OFF OF HAVEN'S NEEDS/WANTS LIST: Some of the Haven beneficiaries are located in churches, domestic abuse shelters, or foster care. Haven has worked with these establishments to identify what they need in order to supply appropriately for their people. Based off of these discussions, Haven has compiled a list of items (the list ranges from jackets to gloves, toothbrushes to pajamas, boardgames to grocery gift cards, stuffed animals to socks and everything in between....) and purchasing items off of this Haven-compiled list is yet another way you could give to those around us!
HELPING HAVEN BY PROVIDING A FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION: Perhaps you would consider a tax-deductible contribution to The Haven Project... All donations are 100% percent used to supply for the needs and wants of our Haven families.
