Donations Needed for Local Home to Benefit Trafficked Children

Donations Needed for Local Home to Benefit Trafficked Children

Last month, Spencerville Church hosted a seminar on human trafficking led by our own Amanda Rodriguez. Amanda is the Executive Director of Turn Around, Inc., which provides counseling, support, and advocacy for victims of human trafficking, domestic violence, and more.

Turn Around, Inc. is opening a home for trafficked children in the greater Baltimore area in late March. The home will serve eight children at a time and house the staff needed for counseling and supervision. Amanda has provided a list of the things required to make this home a warm and welcoming place for these children who have already endured so much.

Please prayerfully consider making a donation (list of items below) to this worthy cause.

Donated items should be new and not previously used.

Items needed include:

  • Twin bedding (sheets, pillows, pillowcases, blankets, bedspreads)
  • Towels, hand towels, and washcloths
  • Place settings (dishes, glasses, flatware, cups)
  • Shelf-stable food items (catsup, mayonnaise, mustard, salt, pepper, honey, and sugar)
  • Cooking supplies (pots, pans, mixing bowls, cooking utensils, cookie sheets, hot pads)
  • Kitchen items (can opener, trash can, trash can liners, paper napkins, paper towels, and dish soap)
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Hygiene products (soap, toothpaste, body wash, shampoo and conditioner, sanitary products, toilet paper)

Purchased items may be brought to the church during regular business hours or over the next few Sabbaths. All donations may be placed on the white cart in the foyer where possible. Online orders may also be delivered to the church address at:
