Rag Ball Ornaments

Rag Ball Ornaments

Rag ball ornaments made by our Pioneer Clubs children are available on the lower level near the Pioneer Clubs office for you to take. Donations benefit our 2014 Haiti Mission Team.

About the ornaments

In Haiti, children make soccer balls out of rags. These “rag ball” ornaments were made to remind us of our blessings and to support the Haiti Foundation Against Poverty.

Jwaye Nowel! Merry Christmas!
