Each month, we collect One Thing for service and mission partners locally and globally.
This month’s One Thing is 31:8 Project. 31:8 Project is a local non-profit that works to combat human trafficking in North Dakota. They educate, advocate, and raise awareness in order to prevent human trafficking. The gift cards will go directly to survivors who are establishing a new life with the assistance and support of case managers and mentors. Suggested Gift Card ideas include Wal-Mart, CashWise, Dan’s Supermarket, and gas stations in increments of $10, $15, $20, and $25. Drop off gift card donations on Sundays at the Connection Desks at the North or South campuses, during the week at the Legacy office (4600 Durango Drive, Bismarck) from 9 am-3 pm, or skip the line and ship directly to the church at the links below. Goal: 50 gift cards. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2CGR1MZ987FE2/ref=cm_go_nav_hz
