Weekend Snacks for Students at McDavid-Jones

This is the third year that the Bethel Baptist Women have provided weekly snacks for several of the students at McDavid-Jones Elementary. The group decided to help out those in need by supporting them with snack food through the weekend. Every Friday the qualified fourteen students receive a filled book bag, then they return the book bag on Monday and the women refill it for the next weekend. The students are so excited to receive their book bags filled with goodies.
The past few months the youth group at the Simple House of Praise has been collecting snacks to donate to Bethel. These young people are setting quite an example for our community. McDavid-Jones would like to thank them for their generosity, as thiscan be a very expensive program.
This is such a wonderful way to let the students and families know that the community churches are working to support our students. This outreach program is touching many lives at McDavid-Jones school. Thank you, Bethel Baptist for your efforts on behalf of our students.
If you would like further information about the program you can contact Stan Clayton or Angie Young at the church office 866-7574. Any donations are greatly appreciated.
