Christmas Angel Tree & The Heifer Project
Published by JamesMarie on December 5, 2011 - 3:11pm
No matter if it is in times of plenty or hardship - there is always a family in need. Whether it is a much needed winter coat, shoes that fit... or something to make their day a little brighter like a new toy - we want to help.
Sunday, December 11th the First Presbyterian Church of Caldwell will have the names of up to 25 children on the Angel tree that are in need. If you would like to help with this worthy cause, you can come by and choose a name from the tree or leave a monetary donation and we will use that money towards purchasing gifts/food/general home supplies for the children and families.
We also support the Heifer Project every year and this year is no different. We are collecting donations in the hope of raising enough money to purchase a heifer (or other animal) to help a family somewhere. From the website:
"Heifers Equal Hope
When a family has a cow, every morning there's a glass of rich milk for the children to drink before heading off to school. Classes are paid with the income from the sale of milk, and there's even enough to share with the neighbors.
A good dairy cow can produce four gallons of milk a day - enough for a family to drink and share with neighbors. Milk protein transforms sick, malnourished children into healthy boys and girls. The sale of surplus milk earns money for school fees, medicine, clothing and home improvements.
Better still, every gift multiplies, as the animal's first offspring is passed on to another family-then they also agree to pass on an animal, and so on.
And because a healthy cow can produce a calf every year, every gift will be passed on and eventually help an entire community move from poverty to self reliance. Now that's a gift worth giving!"
