Tree of Giving

We are continuing our Christmas tradition with the Tree of Giving at Faith Lutheran.  This year, during December, we will be collecting essential items for children going into foster care.

Safe Haven Foster Shoppe, based out of Isanti, is a non-profit organization that collects basic care items for children, and distributes foster care placement bags as needed through a network of county agencies and directly with foster homes.  More information at
