“To touch people and change lives by reaching their needs in a real and tangible way…”
“BWM/SBS” help people in the community who are going through various difficulties in their lives.
Our A.R.K.S. Team (Acts of Random Kindness & Service) assists people in emergency or crisis situations through:
Various outreaches such as coat drive, blanket drive, food for the homeless, etc.
Annual outreaches include:
