A Royal Opportunity for Coldwater!

World Series Fundraiser!

Rally House has its hands full with World Series orders
and would like Coldwater's help in exchange for donations
This is a great opportunity to get in on the craziness of the World Series 
while providing support for those who need help in our community.  
For each Coldwater volunteer we send to help out at the 
Lenexa warehouse during the next two weeks 
-- day or night, weekday or weekend -- 
Coldwater receives $10 per hour per volunteer.
If you are interested, contact Liz Worth at 913-777-5511
 to set up a time that fits your schedule. 
Just let her know you are a Coldwater volunteer. 

Volunteers must be 17 years of age to participate.
Thank you for supporting the Coldwater mission.  
Monica Humbard, Interim Coldwater Director

In October, Coldwater will start sign-ups for Christmas adoptions. For many of the families Coldwater serves, Christmas adoption gifts are tremendously important to ensure their children have presents under the Christmas tree. Last year with the help of our generous community Coldwater was able to fulfill the Christmas wishes of 550 children. If you adopted last year, thank you for helping make wishes come true for children in our community. 
We anticipate the same need this year. To help you start your planning for Christmas gift-giving, we would like to give you plenty of time to sign up to adopt a child(ren) through Coldwater. If you would like to adopt a child(ren) this holiday season, please contact Melisa Davis at Christmasadoptions@hotmail.com.

Families may sign up at the Friend's Day events on October 11 and 25.
Once you have indicated that you would like to adopt a child, volunteers will send you information about the child(ren) through the mail at the end of October. Gift tags will give you all of the information you need to buy your child a clothing item and special request item. We also will include gift-buying tips and drop-off instructions.
Thank you so much for your generosity. Happy Holidays!
Melisa Davis & Jennifer Collier
