Florida Baptist Children’s Homes (FBCH) is inviting everyone to its Miami Campus, 7748 SW 95th Terrace, on Dec. 8 from 6-8 p.m. to enjoy festive treats and to see how the lives of One More Child are being impacted every day by the organization.
“It is a wonderful opportunity to experience a place where we are passionate about helping One More Child every day,” said Dr. Jerry Haag, President of Florida Baptist Children’s Homes. “When people provide their time, energy and resources it makes a major impact in a child’s life.”
The need for partners, volunteers and donors is real. This year more than 13,000 children in Florida have been removed from homes due to investigations involving abuse, abandonment or neglect. That means, each week on average, more than 300 children around the state are taken out of their homes and placed in a new environment.
FBCH impacted 171,273 children and individuals last year through its local and global ministries.
While not expected, donations would be a huge blessing for the children FBCH serves. Items that would make a major impact include: non-perishable foods, pajamas, socks and paper or personal hygiene goods.
People can contact Florida Baptist Children’s Homes to learn about opportunities to bless children by helping meet the campus’s Gingerbread Gift needs. This program ensures that every child has a special gift under the Christmas tree.
