What better way to share the love of Christ with children in our community than to share a sweet treat on Valentine’s Day! I could use a little help…Pepper and I would like to put together about 100 Valentine’s Day “happies” for the LOVE BAG project. The children who receive LOVE BAGS are needy students in Webster County Schools (K-12 in both Eupora and East Webster Schools). These children struggle with many of the necessities we often take for granted, even food over the weekend.
We are hoping to collect Valentine Candy, juice boxes, Valentine cookies, maybe a small Valentine toy, etc. for a special “happy” for 100 children. If you can donate a bag of candy, Bibles, salvation tracts, a box of juice boxes or cookies (or anything else the children could use), please drop them by First Baptist Church of Eupora’s church office (from 8 a.m.-noon or 1-4:30 p.m.) before Feb. 12 (THIS SUNDAY)! We would greatly appreciate it!
Special THANKS to all those who helped with the Easter LOVE BAGS for less fortunate children in Webster County Schools! So many not only provided for the Easter “happies” that were distributed today at both East Webster and Eupora Schools, but provided extra supplies of food and personal hygiene items to help students in grades K4-12 get through the Good Friday 3-day weekend. Y’all are AMAZING! And the sweet one learned a new skill — curling ribbon! He was so sweet to help pack bags! Thank you all so much for providing much needed items and Easter “happies” — because everyone NEEDS chocolate on Easter morning!!!
