In September this year we took delivery of our own Wellspring Collection Bin. Thanks to the power of social media and your very kind generosity we were able to fill our Wellspring Donation Bin several times over.
We have collected numerous bags of warm clothing, shoes and blankets to help the homeless during these bitterly cold winter months.
