Raphael House donations

Our kindergartners will once again be collecting items for the Raphael House of Portland.  The Raphael House of Portland has been offering shelter to women and children fleeing domestic violence since 1977.  Our kindergartners have been collecting donations for the Raphael House for fourteen years running.  They always show great excitement and joy when giving to those in need.  I have also always impressed with how much our Winterhaven community gives.  Please help our kindergartners help others.
