If you are interested in exploring the possibilities of the best way to provide beds, please contact careportal@nwpresby.
Session created a fund to meet the cost of “big ticket” items such as beds, mattresses, and appliances. Money is available to quickly meet needs. The congregation would then be informed of the items that were purchased and the reason for the purchase and then given the opportunity to donate to replenish the fund.
For information about using this fund, contact email@example.com.
