TIE 17,000 BLUE RIBBONS TO BRING AWARENESS TO CHILDREN IN FOSTER CARE IN ARIZONA

May is National Foster Care Awareness Month, and the Living Word Foster Initiative is asking for help to spread the word. Please joins us for a ribbon tie event on Saturday May 2nd in downtown Phoenix, where we will be helping to tie 17,000 Blue Ribbons to honor and bring awareness to more than 17,000 children in foster care in Arizona. We are looking to create a team of volunteers to head downtown that morning. If you are interested please email your information at cmaes@living-word.com or sign up at the Outreach counter in Mesa.
