Confirmation Class Says Thanks for Assisting the Mission Project: Helping Syria!

The Confirmation Class  thanks everyone who bought sweets and gave money to the Syria Humanitarian Relief Fund. Together we raised $1,000. Some people even donated using our new credit card phone app.

With your donations we will be able to help Syrians during this very difficult time in their country’s history.

        Thank you, 2012 Confirmation Class
