Operation Baby Love: Help Us Make the Season Bright for New Families in Need

We partner with Strong’s Social Work Department each year to make the holidays a little brighter for new families enduring hardships, and this year the need is greater than last. Please consider helping make this year’s Operation Baby Love a success by partnering with your friends and colleagues to adopt a family, or make a small donation toward our general collection to supplement the care packages given to each family.
