2019 Baptist Childrenʹs Homes Annual Food Drive
April 8 –18, 2019, the UBA Missions Resource Center collected for the Baptist Children’s Homes (BCH) Annual Food Drive. The Children’s Home has experienced a 25% increase in the number of children served without a corresponding budget increase. We thank the six (6) churches and the FCCLA (Family, Career & Community Leaders of America, Piedmont High School) that participated to provide staple food items, paper products and cleaning supplies. Also, a total of $150.00 was given in gift cards. This annual food drive helps BCH provide more than 70,000 meals and snacks to children in care on their campuses across North Carolina. Micah Lee, BCH Director of Development for the Metrolina Region, extends appreciation and a sincere thank you to all who gave for this ministry that benefits the children.
Thank you to the volunteers from Ground 40: Greg Faile, Wesley Keziah & Woody Lyles for assisting with loading the truck this year.
We appreciate the assistance of Ann Dora Rollins and Betty Kiker from Mountain Springs Baptist Church & Sherry Lane from Philadelphia Baptist Church; for helping to sort, check dates, and pack the supplies in cardboard boxes.
