Outreach program to help orphans around the world
BLOOMSBURG - Students in the Central PA Chamber of Commerce's Building Leaders for the Susquehanna Valley District 2, were given a presentation on Father's Hope, a locally-based new orphan outreach project.
As part of the presentation, students wrote cards in Spanish, which will be shipped to orphans in Spanish-speaking countries.
Kevin Mertz, founder of Father's Hope, told students the effort is to engage community organizations, schools, youth groups, individuals and churches to collect items such as stuffed animals, crayons and coloring books to be shipped along with the cards to orphanages around the world.
