I Feel the Love- July 2012


Sheffield Place opened its doors in February 1991 as a community response to the growing population of homeless mothers and their children in the Kansas City area. Since then, Sheffield Place has assisted more than 560 families in making the difficult journey from homelessness to self-sufficiency.

The Director of Sheffield Place has asked that one of their volunteers throw a birthday party once a month for the kids at the shelter. It would be great if they had a stash of birthday cards and decorations to use for these occasions. I was thinking that we could really contribute in a big way! Let's show him just how much we care. Please consider joining me in making birthday cards for boys and girls and/or birthday decorations, such as a banner that can be reused. This homeless shelter would be very grateful to receive a big box of cards and decorations from us!

I can see it now. The face of the homeless child celebrating his or her birthday in the shelter and receiving a beautiful homemade card. His or her face will light up knowing that someone out there cares enough to send such a gift. That someone can be you! All you need to do is:

 Submit your card/s or decorations by July 31 to:
