It all couldn't be achieved without the help of the volunteers!

THE DROP BOX
Focus on the Family is part of our Inspirational evenings on CMR and they have partenered up with Arbella Studios to release a new feature film called "The Drop Box" ~ It's a heart-wrenching documentary about the work of Pastor Lee Jong-rak in South Korea, and his heroic efforts to embrace and protect his community's most vulnerable children. So what he did is install a "baby drop box" outside his home to provide a safe haven for babies who would otherwise be abondoned on the streets.
You will have a chance to win passes to the film that will be coming to the Cinema Twin Theatre on March 04th & 05th, make sure to listen for your cue to call in on the morning show starting Monday.
Here is the link for Focus on the Family as well as the trailer for the film The Drop Box : http://radio.focusonthefamily.ca/

These won't be the ones but they will be just as yummy!
