Letter from Sweet Dream in a Bag: Since the first of the year over 1,000 children have been able to choose their new Sweet Dream Bag and have many, many cozy nights sleep! We are so thankful for all the caseworkers who see the children's bedding needs and are willing to take their own time to set up the Gifting Events. The Pack and Pray volunteers events continues to make plentiful bedding for the Gifting Events. So many faithful volunteers have come to the gifting events, giving their caring and time to the children and their families. The many wonderful donors have made it all possible to purchase new bedding for the children! We are just in awe that Sweet Dream is able to gift so many precious children that need to have their own bedding to sleep well each night and to feel special and cared for. Thank you all for making this possible!!! Sweet Dream has now gifted over 11,500 children!
