During the week of April 4th-8th, please send in new flip flops. They may be any size and for men, women, or children. The flip flops will be donated to the Savannah Baptist Center. The goal of the Baptist Center is to meet the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of the homeless population in Savannah. Those who are in need may take a shower and do their laundry at the Center. Flip flops are given out to each individual to take a shower, and they are incredibly useful as well. Thank you for your continued support as we develop the whole person to the Glory of God!
