Community Support for the Welcome Baby Box

13 Feb 2018
The Welcome Baby Box project in South Lane got a generous boost recently from the Deacons Fund of the First Presbyterian Church in Cottage Grove, which made a $500 donation. The WBB also received the $1,500 Katherine Bisbee Fund Community Mission Grant from Presbytery of the Cascades. The grant funds programs that "strengthen the bonds of communities, neighborhoods and families" and this year focused on supporting victims of domestic violence and/or child abuse and neglect." Thank you!
