Join Us For The 2nd Annual Christmas Outreach – Wings of Love and Care Center
How to sponsor a family? Send us an email if you would like to sponsor a family. We will then send you several profiles to choose from. Each profile will contain a picture of the family, size of the family, ages, and genders of each member, and a “wish list” prepared by each child (these are just suggestions). You are welcome to sponsor a family on your own or build a team to share the joy with. Without you and your family these families will not have much this holiday season.
What is the commitment? Our goal is to provide a full Christmas for each family. The following is what we hope to provide for each family:
• 2 – 3 toy gifts per child (unwrapped)
• 1 outfit per child (child’s sizes will be provided)
• Gift card to purchase holiday dinner
• Wrapping paper and tape
• A household gift for the family (typically a household need)
When and where to deliver items? 5427 Telegraph Road, St. Louis MO 63129. All items are due by December 8th to the Crisis Aid office. Our team will package and prepare them for the Christmas Party on December 16th. Your invitation to the party will be on it’s way once you choose a family! We would love for all sponsors to join us for the party on Dec 30th to be with the families and love on them.
• Out of state donors can shop via Amazon if they want to participate and have items delivered to our offices directly.
• We still need financial donations for things like a catered lunch, décor, and extra presents to make sure recipients feel loved, honored, and hopeful.
• If people would like to donate individual items like gift card
for groceries, or kids clothes, or something like that, it would be ok.
• We still need 40 gingerbread house kits for the party.
• We are having a big decoration making day on Friday the 10th of December if anyone would like to join.

Helping Others Through WINGS This Holiday Season
2017 is shaping up to be an incredible year! The things you have been a part of have blessed so many and your partnership with Crisis Aid International through WINGS has truly touched lives.
Here are some upcoming outreaches that you can still be a part of this year.
YOU can Bring
HOPE, JOY, &
To Families through your GIVING
This year WINGS / Love and Care Youth Center is partnering with a local school where 100% of the children live below the poverty line. We have hand selected 40 families that have great need this holiday season and will be hosting a Christmas Event on December 16th for the families and their sponsors. At the event, the gifts will be given to the parents so they can wrap and give to their children themselves on Christmas morning. Your gift will not only provide gifts for children Christmas morning, but it will uphold dignity for the parents.
by providing a meal or sponsoring a family for Christmas.
Thank you for your partnership and generosity. You are making a lasting change for good in our community.
Back to School Outreach 2017
Because of generous partners who made the annual Back-to-School Outreach possible, we are hearing incredible stories of impact.
Here is one story we received just the other day from a staff member at our partner school:
“You guys have no idea… I had a new girl that started yesterday. Her mother was killed in an accident. She is an amazing little girl in kindergarten. Her grandma has custody of her and her younger brother. She was very excited when I was able to give her one of the Emoji backpacks filled with supplies and help her with a uniform. If it wasn’t for your organization and you guys, this would not have been possible. This child is so excited and it made her aunt cry. She was so grateful!”
Stories like this are not uncommon. They show how big of an impact something like school supplies make in a child’s life. Thank you so much for making moments like this possible; what a joy it was to see the children receive the backpacks and supplies you provided through Wings of Love and Care this year.
Altogether, over 175 children who attend this elementary school in St. Louis, MO (where 100% of families live below the poverty line) were blessed with more than 4,800 supply items! Because so much was donated, we together increased the amount of children served in our annual Back-to-School outreach by 350% this year, enabling us to equip more children than ever with the tools they need to start the school year right.
Special thanks to the Wainwright family for their support and for working with some of the Cardinals’ wives to collect supplies. Thanks also to The Crossing Church, Charter Tax Department, Monarch Jewelry and Endless Opportunities Worldwide for hosting collections. But your impact did not end there.
Again, thank you for your tremendous love, support and prayers.
God bless you,
Sue & Pat Bradley & Team
PS: Together, we currently serve 1,080 people from over 400 families every month. We need your donations today to keep this important year-long work going! Help us help more kids in need.
Will you join us as we help children in need get ready for school?
Our WINGS of Love & Care Annual School Supplies Distribution will be August 9th but supplies must be received by August 4th so we can ensure all needs are met. Our goal is to provide the full list of required supplies for 100 children in an elementary school where 100% of the families live below the poverty line. Please place your order/donation today! Make sure you share your contact information so we can mail you a receipt to use for tax deduction purposes. Thank you!
Donations can be dropped off by August 4th at Crisis Aid M-TH 9:30am-4:30pm or shipped directly to Crisis Aid, 5427 Telegraph Rd., St. Louis, MO 63129. Cash donations are also welcome.
