Mission - Christmas Angel Trees
Christmas Angel Trees
Bower Hill again has 3 angel trees for Christmas.
1. Veterans Leadership Program: The vision of Veterans Leadership Program is that every Veteran of the United States Military reach their fullest potential as citizens of the Nation that they have so proudly served. VLP is proud to serve all who served, regardless of VA eligibility, discharge status or length of service. They have successfully made an impact on 7,200 Veterans annually in 30 counties across Pennsylvania, New York and Ohio.
We will be providing gift cards and gifts for veterans and their families. Gifts need to be returned to Bower Hill, unwrapped, by December 8th.
2. Maasai women and children: The Maasai are a cattle-herding people group in Kenya who are neighbors of Hekima Place. There has been no rain in Kenya for over 2 years and the cattle are dying, leaving the Maasai with no means of support.
We will be providing funds for the management of Hekima Place to buy food drops for the Maasai women so they can feed their children. Each drop costs $35 and will contain 2kg Sugar, 250gm Tea leaves, 4kg Beans , 4kg Maize flour, 4kg Wheat flour, 2lt Cooking oil, 2kg Rice, 1kg Salt and 1 Packaging bag. Make checks out to BHCC and put Hekima Food Box in the memo line. Please return before Christmas Day.
3. Holidays from the Heart: Help reduce the stigma of mental health challenges. The Holidays from the Heart campaign is providing holiday gifts to patients at UPMC Western Behavioral Health. These gifts need to arrive by December 12th so that Mrs. Claus (aka Marianne Cornetti) can distribute them with great fanfare on December 16th.
