What are we up to? We are helping in the areas listed below! Still looking for more clothes for areas we have previously helped and gathering up clothes for a place we have added! God has given us a heart for helping kids
1. Bartlesville elementary school.
2. Bartlesville day care center
3. Center in Pensacola, FL
Disasters please continue to hold off as we have plenty to do and many, many children to help already! As always thankful to those who make it possible for us to help–God, those who give so we can help and the clothing manufacturer we partner with. ~Heart 4 Children Ministries Team
We delivered a stuffed box for 10 kiddos in a Bartlesville elementary school that we helped last year. We had clothes in all the sizes requested and purchased a package of underwear and a package of socks for the last four children of the 10. Feels good to help. ~Mikaela

Wanted to share with you today’s Facebook status.
By Heart 4 Children Ministries, Inc
We wanted to share with you the many needs that children can have and we know that the six we listed are not nearly all of them. Awareness helps spark interest and interest helps spark involvement. Now that you are aware of these children’s needs we hope and pray that you will:
1. Become interested
2. Become involved
The more of our fans that are involved with what we do the more children we can help. As you know, not all of our TWELVE HUNDRED AND FORTY SIX Bananas (fans) will see this post due to how Facebook works now, so we are counting on those who do to SHARE SHARE SHARE! We have lost several of our directors due to their health conditions and are praying that God will send us people who have the heart that we have to help children. ~Mikaela
1. Natural disasters
2. House fires
3. Wild fires
4. Emergency foster care
5. Disadvantaged children
6. Domestic violence
What do all these situations have in common? Stay tuned for the answer.
1. We went shopping for underwear and socks for 6 kids at a local elementary school.
Socks & underwear for a local elementary school.
2. We have been sorting through our inventory for clothes from our clothing manufacturing partner (and other donated clothes as well) that would fit children in the above school ranging in sizes from 3T-8 (we will likely be receiving more sizes.)
3. Once we finish sorting through our inventory for the clothes, we will be heading back to the store to finish purchasing packages of socks and underwear for the other four children.
So no we have not been “sitting on our laurels” just because there have not been any “natural disasters” in the last couple of months. In addition to helping the disadvantaged children at a local elementary school, we are waiting to hear back on whether 2 children whose house was set on fire need any help from us!
Any time you want to join us on one of our adventures just let us know. Well maybe you would not consider shopping for underwear and socks at Walmart, or digging through totes and boxes looking for certain sizes an adventure, but it sure can be!! Keeping it real. Never gets old. ~The Heart 4 Children Ministries Team
We were blessed to find 30 pairs of khakis–10 each for 3T, 4T and 5T the sizes they needed at Crutcho Elementary School as the kids there wear uniforms!
A SHOUT OUT TO OUR GENEROUS DONORS WHO MADE THIS POSSIBLE!!
We shipped a box of khakis a few days ago to Crutcho School near Midwest City, Oklahoma. These kids had to deal with the flood last year that came from the same storm that caused some of the 2013 tornadoes. So glad we can help them again! We are thankful that our local Walmart had them:)~The Heart 4 Children Ministries Team
These pics are from the family that we helped in Joplin. We’ve been blessed to continue long term help with this family that we first helped when we did our Walmart Joplin shopping trip a few months after the May 22, 2011 Joplin tornado. They needed help with their back-to-school needs (clothes, shoes, etc) this year.We could not help if we did not receive your monetary gifts! Thanks so much for caring for the children. ~The Heart 4 Children Ministries Team
If you have children in school, does their school have a tornado shelter? Just checking to see how different areas in the US deal with and feel about protecting our children this way. Parents that lost children in the 5.20.13 Moore, OK tornado have lobbied in OK for tornado shelters in all OK schools. Plaza Towers Elementary was destroyed killing 7 children and Briarwood Elementary School was heavily damaged.
