'Food Roundup' collects food for children's homes
During the month of April, Baptist Children's Homes across North Carolina sponsored the annual Food Roundup, a challenge to N.C. Baptist churches to donate food items and supplies to children's homes across the state.
The Royal Ambassadors (RA) and Girls in Action (GA) mission groups led the Food Roundup at Clyde First Baptist Church. The children, ages 6-11, challenged church members to donate a box of saltine crackers to the Food Roundup. Thirty-five boxes of crackers were donated.
The RAs and GAs also visited a cottage at Broyhill Children’s Home in Clyde. They met children their age who are residents of Broyhill, took a tour of the cottage, and learned what it was like to live at a children’s home.
