Charity and Children's Top 10 Stories
Volunteers from mission teams to a sixth grader used their time, skills and creativity to benefit BCH’s children and families. Madi, an eleven-year-old who lives in Western North Carolina, learned about BCH at East Flat Rock Baptist Church where she attends with her family. For the past three years, Madi has planted a garden and accepts cash donations for the vegetables grown. She donates her proceeds, along with boxes of vegetables, to Broyhill Home in Clyde. Volunteer groups have taken on projects such as collecting back-to-school supplies, knitting blankets and supporting “Friends of Children” workdays at BCH locations. Approximately 2,000 volunteers participated in workdays seeing the ministry firsthand. Mission teams, in cooperation with North Carolina Baptist Men, traveled to Good Shepherd Ministries in Guatemala where 24 teams comprised of 238 volunteers helped at the medical clinic and orphanage.
