Monthly Newsletter – December 2018

Sleeping Bags for the Homeless at Christmas!


We are collecting sleeping bags for the homeless to give out at our Christmas morning outreach. If you wish to donate, they can be purchased at Academy.com for $14.95 each. They are the ones that are rectangular and go down to 30 degrees. We thank you ahead of time for helping with this project. Last year we collected 365 sleeping bags!!

They can be mailed directly to Broken Chains at 3368 Medina Ct., Las Vegas, NV 89121.

Other Highlights

Thanksgiving Outreach at the Park


We had a wonderful Thanksgiving Outreach for the homeless at the park on 11/21, Thanksgiving Eve. It was catered by Kellie Diene and her sister Shannon O’Boyle, aided by employees from Impact Companies.


They served a complete turkey dinner with all the trimmings. And they brought their own volunteers, so our Broken Chains volunteers got a day off. Boy, what a super meal!!! And Kellie and Shannon are also doing our Christmas Outreach. Can’t wait!!

Thank you to Kellie, Shannon and all their volunteers! We are extremely appreciative of all the care and planning put into this event! Pastor Cody says that their Mac & Cheese is the best he has ever tasted!

Yarn Donations

Broken Chains has several ladies at church that knit hats and scarves for the homeless. If you have any yarn that you can donate, please bring it to church. We go to the early service and our bus is always in the parking lot; the back door is always unlocked for donations or it can be left in the church lobby.
