In Search of a New Home

 

We have lost the space for our furniture donations and the lease on our administrative office expires in a year. We are looking to acquire land within the City of Burton to maintain and expand our ministries.

To complement our spring/summer drive-through fundraisers, we're organizing two different raffles this season. One will highlight area restaurants and eateries, and the other will showcase retailers and museums. Please call 979-337-3370 if you can donate to this cause.

Memory Care Blankets

 

Our community-wide project begins with starter quilts sewn by Jolene Wickel, Anna Finke and Carol Doersom. Volunteers from our partner churches and throughout the community added tactile and colorful embelishments to make these blankets for those who suffer from Alzheimer's or memory loss. Purchase a blanket for a loved one, or underwrite a gift to an area memory care facility.
