Please join us for our first event of the year featuring special guest speaker, Carla Hillard.

After seeing the hardships of mothers and children in poverty and hearing their difficult stories, Carla became compelled to serve as a voice for global child protection. Her work with World Vision took her on a surprising journey. She is the devoted mother of six children, including two adopted from China. She’s also a proud grandmother. She has traveled many times to meet those served by World Vision, including to Zambia, Swaziland, Kenya, Bangladesh, and Cambodia.

Come enjoy brunch, hear Carla's inspiring story, and learn how our local chapter of Women of Vision is working to end extreme poverty in the world. Invite a friend! (Women only please.)

If you have questions, please contact Kathy Teckman:

Optional: Bring a book for local children

We'll be collecting donations of new and gently used books for the Children's Book Bank. For children in poverty, one of the biggest obstacles to literacy development is the scarcity of books in the home. If you are able, bring a new or gently used book (or more than one) for children ages birth through grade 1. They will be distributed to children in low-income households. Multicultural books are especially needed and can be found on Amazon. For more information about the Children’s Book Bank, go to www.childrensbookbank.org. Contact April Veit aprilveit@gmail.com with any questions about the book project.
