COMMUNITY CONNECTION SUPPORTING FAMILIES IN NEED
July 2022 | Vol.3 | Week 1
First, some exciting news!
We are so honored to be named the "Outstanding Organization of 2021" by the Dallas Chamber of Commerce. Check out pics below!
14th Annual Bambinos Fundraiser Banquet & Auction! Sunday, October 2, 2022
Salem Convention Center 200 Commercial St SE, Salem, OR 97301 RESERVE YOUR TABLE NOW!
We are pleased to share that as of the writing of this letter, we have served over 100 new children just since our last auction! This brings our families served since 2008, to over 500 families (this includes over 800 children)!
We would greatly appreciate your attendance to this exciting event! Table sponsorship can be purchased for $300.00. As with last year, we will not be selling individual tickets this year. Table sponsorship includes advertising, plus appetizers, salad, entrée and dessert. Coffee, tea and water will be served, and a no-host bar will also be available.
Our theme this year is, “The Harvest is Great.” Our ministry has been EXTREMELY busy with formula shortages and the ongoing after-effects of supply chain issues due to COVID. We, however, have had neither shortage of supplies, nor of clients who have expressed great need, both physically and spiritually. In turn, our greatest need is for volunteers to join us in the work we’re doing. We recognize that you may not be called to volunteer in our office, but if you pray, we ask that you join us as we pray, according to Luke 10:2, that “the Lord of the harvest…would send laborers into his harvest.” Did you catch that? It’s HIS harvest. Not ours. That’s a comfort for us. He sees the need, so we can have confidence that He will supply the workers if we ask Him.
We look forward to spending the evening with you to share about what we have to celebrate and where the Lord has brought this ministry over the past year.
Thank you for your ongoing support, Bambinos, OR Board of Directors
Also, a friendly reminder with Christmas shopping upon us...there’s another easy way for you to help! Simply access your Amazon account by shopping through Smile.Amazon.com when doing your normal purchasing. All your account information will stay the same, but Amazon agrees to put 0.5% of your purchase amount towards the charity of your choice. Just select Bambinos Or in the upper left hand corner to make us the charity of choice. It's that easy.
Another great way to help us while shopping on Amazon is to just add a pack of diapers and/or wipes to any order and have it shipped to us! We appreciate any way that help is given.
When we as the Bambinos board lists the people and things we're most thankful for this Thanksgiving season, you're on our list!
HELP SUPPORT BAMBINOS
We are always in need of people who can pledge to send us a monthly gift that we can put toward our expenses. We call these wonderful people "Bambinos Builders." A pledge as little as $5 per month can still make a big difference.
