MTEA-R & MTEA Winter 2016 Community Involvement Project

Donations Needed for the Sojomtea-r-soujourner-and-mtea-logourner Family Peace Center

MTEA-R and the MTEA have selected Sojourner Family Peace Center as our partner for the Winter 2016 Community Involvement project. Advocating for and protecting local families escaping violence in their homes, Sojourner Family Peace Center’s services are an integral part of creating a safer community for all. This winter, we ask all members of the MTEA and MTEA-R to donate in one or more of the following ways.

Donate items for Sojourner Grab ‘N Go Bags

A Grab ‘N Go Bag is a 1 gallon Ziploc freezer bag containing the following new/unused items:mtea-r-grab-n-go-bag
