You asked, we answered: Why our stores can’t accept all donations?

Thought of the Month:
Give and it will be given to you. Luke 6:38

Be quick to serve others. In giving, you will receive. There's and old but true phrase, "To make a friend, be a friend." To give acceptance to others is to receive acceptance. To widen your circle of friends to include others in to include in the broader circles of their lives. Jesus taught, "Give and it will be given to you." When you give to others a sense of belonging, you feel a greater sense of belonging.
