For a list of bag contents, current needs, and patterns for bags and quilts,
We would love to see all child services offices involved in this project! We provide in house demonstrations and are in close contact to ensure that there are always bags on hand. Please contact us for more information on how to get started, and to let us know if you need more bags!
This is a fantastic way to give back to your local community! We are always in need of financial donations, as many personal items must be purchased new. We also take donations of items you may be overstocked on that are a good fit for our bags. Contact us and see if we are a good match!
This is a ministry that blesses and is blessed in so many ways. We would love to have every town or community covered by IMVO. If you have a passion for helping and getting involved and feel there is a need in your community,contact us and we will get you set up with your own chapter or make sure your community is covered. All chapters of IMVO work together and are always ready to help each other out so you will never be left on your own.
A perfect project for your guild!
We are always in need of quilts, ranging in sizes from baby quilts to 46"x60" (flannel backing with quilting cotton fronts). Other great quilts are rag and denim quilts, and teen boy quilts are always needed.
Also, we love to receive bibs, wash cloths, small bags for items such as toys or toiletries, receiving blankets and anything else you love to sew!
Children absolutely love getting involved! We would love to come to your class and give a presentation on what is in our bags, and what kids can do to help!

One of the strongest ways to grow our faith
is to practice our faith.
Many have a willing heart, a desire to make a difference, and a burden to share the love of God to others, especially those in need.
If your organization is looking for more ways
