On May 18th the H2H ministry took a giant step forward with a wonderful afternoon of fellowship, entertainment, and fundraising. The event, featuring the fabulous music of Ernie Rushing and an entertaining children’s drama, raised over $9,000 for the H2H Backpack program. These funds, combined with donations received prior to the event, now total over $12,000! With these funds this ministry will completely underwrite the cost of weekend meals for the current 51 students in the Ashley Elementary Backpack program for all of next school year and for this coming summer.
My, oh my, what God can do with our gifts, passions, and callings! Many thanks to the H2H ministry team, all the volunteers, and to those who have contributed so far to this incredible ministry.
That said, we’re just getting started. There are many more deserving kids at Ashley who need to benefit from this calling and our gifts. As we bring the spring season to a close, the H2H Ministry Team would like to everyone to consider ways in which they might contribute, financially or otherwise, to this worthy cause. Wouldn’t it be great if we could fund at least another 50 kids?
