Christmas in July for Hometown Heroes
Christmas in July for Hometown Heroes

We’re collecting donations to create care packages for deployed soldiers from Monroe County! We’ll partner with Military Families of Monroe County (MFMC), which is a local nonprofit that exists to provide support for those in active duty, veterans, and military families in Monroe County.

MFMC ships care packages worldwide to our local service members, and we want to help provide the items they need to build Christmas care packages. BAC Kids will also be coloring and creating cards to go in the care packages, so this is an impact the whole family can do together!

We’ll be collecting the following items through Sunday, July 28. Bring your donations during one of our services on Sunday mornings at 9 & 11 am or drop off your donations throughout the week, Monday-Thursday, 9 am – 3 pm.

All donations will benefit deployed troops from Monroe County. Thank you for supporting our hometown heroes!
