Who we are
‘It’s My Very Own’ is a faith based non-profit organization committed to working with communities to provide for the immediate needs of children being removed from their homes by local child protective services. It is our mission is to reach out to displaced children and the families who take them in. Our goal is to have each child in our area receive a ‘bag of love’, providing them with needed items to help make the transition easier for them, give them some comfort and let them know there are people who care.
We are run by members of The Drayton Valley SDA church and members of our community who give our their time and resources to donate the necessary items that go into the bags.
Bags are delivered to Child Protective services who deliver them to the children as needed.
There are a variety of ways you can help. You can donate items for the bags, if you like sewing or quilting, we take homemade quilts and other sewn items. A handmade quilt goes in every bag. Financial donation are also welcome or if you see a need in your community you can start your own chapter.
We are based out of Drayton Valley and work with the Drayton and Rocky Mountain House Child Services. Our storage facility is located in Warburg Alberta.
