Clothing collection

Clean, gently used summer and winter weight clothing for all ages, shoes, blankets, linens, and toys are collected year round at the Bel Air Church. Please place all donations in the container in the barn.

Volunteer

Pick a day or join a group, to take items to the warehouse and then spend a hour or several hours, sorting and packing items in banana boxes in preparation for shipping. You won’t believe the scope of this ministry! HELP IS ALWAYS NEEDED. Do call ahead to make arrangements. 410-452-8699 Our middle schoolers are looking forward to their summer Work & Witness Trip spent away at the warehouse. This is a great family volunteer opportunity. If you want to go with a group from church, call Jane Pritchett,

Crisis Care Kits

When there is a natural disaster in the U.S. or around the world often thousands of people are left homeless and without basic supplies. Filling Crisis Care Kits is a year round ministry project at the Bel Air Church. Pick up a Crisis Care Kit 2 gallon bag & List of Supplies at the Welcome Center, fill it and return to the church.

A Crisis Care Kit consists of the following:

  • 1 Medium size bottle of Shampoo (12 to 18 oz.) (Please tape lid down)

Each Kit should contain only the items & quantities requested. Items must match the above inventory. Deviating from list can cause a whole shipment to be rejected. Cost of the items is approximately $20.00.

School Pal Paks

Many children around the world are not allowed to go to school if their families can not afford school supplies. School Pal-Paks are a wonderful way to help these child receive an education. This, too, is a year round need, but one we highlight during the summer months when Moms and Dads are shopping for their children’s school supplies, hoping they can pick up a little extra. Pick up a School Pal Pak 1 gallon bag & List of Supplies at the Welcome Center, fill it and return to the church.
