Pillow cases for foster kids
A united effort by children at several Tulsa-area churches created colorful travel bags from pillowcases, for foster children served by the Circle of Care’s Child Share program. They used fabric markers to decorate some pillowcases and tie-dyed others. Rope was inserted to make a drawstring. The project was directed by children’s ministry directors at four churches: Verdigris, Jenks, Tulsa-Faith, and Tulsa-Boston Avenue. The directors meet monthly to share ideas and plans, said Ellen Wehn of Verdigris UMC. The bags were consecrated in worship before delivery to the Child Share office.
