The Childrens Center Gift

Many of you have asked about the Gingerbread Tea and the donations that we gave to The Children's Center. I wanted to report that in addition to the monetary donation, we were also able to collect over $500.00 in personal hygeine items that we delivered to the center in January.

Ashlie, Della, my sons Blake and Benjamin, and myself took a personal tour of the facility. The Children's Center provides medical care and therapy for inpatient and outpatient children. It was a very moving experience especially for my own kids. Benjamin recognized a classmate from his school that has been written about in the newspaper and heralded as a miracle kid. We got to visit him and it really touched all of us to hear his story.

Thank you everyone for helping put a smile on the face of a child.

Matthew 19:14 Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
