Arkansas Support Network Christmas (Donations)
Location: Arkansas Support Network
Arkansas Support Network is in desperate need of your help. We serve individuals with disabilities and their families in NWA. Every year, we provide holiday food, warm clothes, and gifts to individuals with disablities who would otherwise not have a Christmas. This year, we have over 200 qualified individuals (adults and children) and we are needing community support to meet these needs. Without community help, these adults and children will go without.

The C.A.L.L. Food Drive (Food Drive)
Location: Siloam Springs
There are over 150 foster children in Benton County. There are 5 C.A.L.L. homes in Siloam Springs, 35 in Benton County. Foster parents are not paid a salary - they are paid a "Board Payment" that just barely covers the needs of their foster child. This is an opportunity for Christians to join and/or support other Christians in this ministry. During this season of thankfulness for home and family, we are inviting churches & youth ministries to minister to foster homes in the area via a Food Drive, to thank God for His blessings & to share those blessings with others. If you would like more information about the C.A.L.L. check out http://www.thecallinarkansas.org/about-the-call-in-benton-county.htmlIf you would like join us in our Food Drive, let me know! Boxes are available now until Nov 13.
