Supporting Children In Foster Care


For every ornament you purchase this year, an anonymous donor will match the cost.

Ex. You purchase 10 at $25.00 each ($250.00 is your cost), and $250.00 will be donated to Bags of Hope as well!

NBCRI plays a small part each year in helping Bags of Hope NE reach its goals.

You are more than welcome to partner with us in a continuing effort to support their mission.

"There are many ways to get involved with Bags of Hope!

The first and easiest is to PRAY!

Another easy way to be a part of what we're doing for Bags of Hope is to purchase an ornament. By purchasing one ornament, you are covering the cost of one duffle bag. Each ornament has the name of the child who will receive a duffle bag. Once purchased, please hang the ornament on your tree and pray over that child. Fill out the order form below first, then click the orange "GIVE" button at the lower right-hand corner to pay for the item(s).

*If you prefer, give your purchased ornament to a shut-in who would love to pray over it.

Or you can GIVE of your TIME. Volunteers are needed to help in various ways, days, and times. To volunteer on your own Click here to sign up!

Please indicate on the form below if you want to participate. Please be sure that you can commit, as we don't want to take other spots away from other potential volunteers.

From Bags of Hope....and finally....part of the vision of Bags of Hope is that the responsibility of caring for children in foster care does not solely rest on the social workers and the state... neither does it rest on an organization such as ours! The responsibility belongs to ALL OF US! So with that, our vision for the functioning part of Bags of Hope is to include as many churches, groups, and organizations as possible. When we all lift the burden together and help each other carry the load, it's much more manageable!" - Kim & John Gagne
