Share hope, love through Thanksgiving Offering

When you give to our annual Thanksgiving Offering, you are giving warm meals to hungry children. You are giving hope to families who are thinking about giving up. You are giving education to kids who have previously struggled in school. You are giving family to kids who are longing for a home. Greatest of all, you are showing the love of Christ to our Sunrise kids and families.
