2017 Local Children Won’t Have Christmas Without Your Help
This year has been a hard year for everyone. Some have been harder than others and Christmas will be even harder for some families this year. A lot of times we don't think of a mass number of children doing without here in our own community, we like to tell ourselves it only happens in big cities. The reality is, it happens right here. Many of you heard us talking about this on the radio this morning and asked how you can help. Here's how.
3:11 Ministries is a local organization that helps underprivileged kids in Midland County that are in need. We I first spoke with Stephanie from 3:11 they had about 1500 kids on the list, in 5 days that number has grown by more than 500.
One of the biggest reasons I love working with 3:11 Ministries is because they work directly with the local schools to know which children are in actual need. In the first 45 days of school 3:11 helped more kids with uniforms than they did all of last year.
