Thank you, friends of LaCare!
The children attending Vacation Bible School from First United Methodist Church and First Christian Church of Burnet were challenged to give offerings for 500 pounds of food, and then 1000 pounds. They beat it all and raised enough for 1500 pounds of food for Hope Bags distributed by LaCare. They had hoped to raise $100.00 and were shocked by the excitement of the children to "help out"! After all was calculated they were able to present a check to LaCare for $197.37. This will allow LaCare to purchase 1,518 pounds of food for their Bags of Hope!Thank you Friends of LACare!
With much care and joy, student volunteers packed snack bags for children on summer break. A huge thanks to Hayden McBeath, Hadley McBeath, Andrew Basey, Grant Basey and MaKenzie for their help!
