Once a year the Children’s Home of Lubbock ask that we collect money for their ‘Dollar Days’. This Sunday, Sept 17th, we will pass the plate a second time to collect your donations, make checks payable to the church.
“At The Children’s Home of Lubbock, we do our best to make every penny count. We can feed a child for about $1.00 per meal. For each cottage, that adds up to about $10.00 per family per meal. As a family, please consider donating at least $10 for one meal for a cottage, or for a gift of $110, one of your families can provide one meal for every cottage at the Home! Please pray for God’s guidance as you plan how to share your blessings with the children at The Children’s Home of Lubbock.”
