6 were delivered to children staying at the Domestic Violence Shelter by Sharon Cardwell, THEN IN ADDITION

18 were delivered to children in foster care through Vicki Homerick and her daughter Heather.

We made up baskets the next couple of days for those children under age 3 and for those over 6th grade so that all children in these homes would receive one and each contained age-appropriate gifts.

Question:   What happened with the baskets remaining in the Fellowship Hall?

Answer:     70 were delivered to New Hope for distribution to adults who are involved in their programming.  Deputy Gary Keiner (who heads up and brought the Young Explorers to help us with traffic at the Drive-Thru) looked the baskets over, commented on how nice they were, and then suggested the adults at New Hope would be delighted to receive such baskets; that many of the books and activities, etc. would be perfect for them.  We believe it was a part of God’s plan all along.  Everyone there thought it was a terrific idea, one we probably wouldn’t have thought of, but God…
