Bridgetown: A Jesus Church partnered with Reason Church to spruce up the Alberta Child Welfare Office in Portland. More than 30 volunteers reorganized the clothing closet, made-over a conference room, cleaned and sanitized all of the branch's visitation rooms, and reorganized storage spaces. The churches also provided a new microwave and coffee maker for the staff room in addition to hand-written thank you notes and cookies for each staff member. Volunteers also stocked organized the clothing closet for kids when they first enter foster care, and restocked diapers and snacks for caseworkers to utilize while kids are waiting in the office.
