Gifts with Vision – Gifts that Make a Difference:

In this season of giving would you like to give a gift that lasts all year long? Want to remember someone special in a very special way? Want to avoid gifts that will require exchanging, watering, dusting, or recycling? Give a gift with impact! Consider a donation to the Region 15 outreach programs that depend on the Mission & Service fund! These programs support the lives of those in need in our communities in very practical ways.  Please note: Not all M&S outreach programs are included in the printed edition of the Gifts with Vision catalogue. All programs are listed on the Gifts with Vision website: Gifts with Vision
