IMG_0479 There is never a dull moment at the joy office and JOY always abounds!  Our volunteers were busy creating outfits for the Mavis dogs, embroidering bandanas, crocheting quilts and more!  We have so many ask “what makes those little stuffed Mavis dogs so special?”  All the love, prayer, and TLC that go into each one.  They are the “calling card” of Joy In The Cause and are usually accompanied by a care package going to help bring a smile and support.  Our volunteers are a work of heart who make it happen!  A village of angels indeed!

It was delivery day as well for more backpacks!  Today the Tulsa tulsa pub school policePublic School Police received backpacks and many Mavis dogs.  It is a joy to partner TPS-TPD to help children in crisis.  A great crew!  It was a joy to spend some time with them today.
