Serving With Heart

After learning about CPC during Sanctity of Human Life month at Westminster Reformed Presbyterian Church, Grace Fowler (pictured at far left) wanted to do more than just put change in a bottle.  Grace approached her 5th and 6th grade girls’ Sunday School teacher and classmates with the idea to make one-of-kind Valentine cards to benefit CPC.

With encouragement from their teacher Betty Thompson, the young ladies went home to create.  For two Sundays the girls displayed their cards and asked for donations in return for the special Valentines.  To let church members know about their project, the girls took turns standing in the foyer with a hand-made cardboard sign between services.  In total, these young ladies raised $460.35!

Grace and her mom, Nancy, hand-delivered the special donation to The Keim Center of Portsmouth during Valentine’s Day week.

We are so honored by all of your courage, hard work and generosity – thank you, ladies!
