March Recap

We had a wonderful month of March. As we explored the five love languages of children, we gained valuable insight as to how to fill our child's "love tanks." We began our new mission with the March of Dimes by supporting the Dreyer family in the fight to help prevent premature birth. Please keep sending in those dimes, every little bit helps! We also had another successful trip to the food pantry, helping organize and stock the shelves. The next two months hold many exciting topic and events. We hope you can join us!

Upcoming events

We are so excited to have the 2018 March of Dimes Ambassador Family among us! The Dreyer family has had 2 preemies who have survived and they are using the experience and blessings they have encountered to help others.

We will be collecting dimes during the month of March (in the mail hallway) to help support their team! Start collecting those dimes, every little bit helps.

Premature birth affects about 380,000 babies each year in the United States . Together we can help the March of Dimes fight prematurity so more moms and babies can get the strongest start possible. Please help support the Dreyer team at www.marchforbabies.org/dreyer_auggie or join the team and march on April 29, at 9:00 a.m. at Paul Brown Stadium. Let me know if you have additional questions.
