We were so blessed on Sunday to have a group of young people from Top Hand Cowboy Church come to Friends for Life to volunteer. T.O.P.S. stands for Together Offering Prayer & Service. These kids did just that! They completed painting the fence, cleaned the weeds out of the garden beds and made Mother’s Day and Father’s Day cards for our clients. It is rare that you see kids this young WANT to serve. The kids were Elementary School age all the way to High School age. Thank you to Gloria Moran for leading group and a big thank you to all of the kids and adults that volunteered.
All of us here at Friends for Life are saddened by the event that took place in West, TX yesterday. We are in contact with area nursing facilities to see what the needs are for the elderly residents that formerly resided at Rest Haven. It seems that most have been placed in facilities, however all of their belongings were lost in the explosion. If you would like information on how you can help meet these needs…please call Casey Moore @ 254-772-8100 ext 107.
Friends for Life wants to thank the Senior Kiwanis Club of Waco for bringing us coats and TONS of food for our pantry. We have a GREAT relationship with the Senior Kiwanis that has lasted through the years! We appreciate all they do for Friends for Life and the Waco community.
Nathan stopped by the American Football Coaches Association today in Waco to visit with Coach Grant Teaff. Nathan presented Coach Teaff with a bookmark that he made and thanked him for all he does for Friends for Life. Coach Teaff made Nathan feel very special! What a GREAT day!!
