Heifer International at COS
The COS Jr. High Youth Group has proudly supported Heifer International for many years. Heifer International equips communities with sustainable tools that enable them to provide for themselves. Farm animal donations help reduce hunger and poverty. Our kids usually collect donations during December coffee hours and have consistently helped us gift an Arc ($5000 level) each year to the program. A $20 donation buys a flock of chickens, a water buffalo is $250 ($25/share), honeybees are $30 and you can donate a sheep for $120. On behalf of the Jr. High Youth Group, we'd like to continue this tradition in a year when the need is as great as ever. If you're interested in contributing to Heifer International this year, any amount is appreciated. You can donate online at www.chicagocos.org/give and select the Heifer Project fund line.
