Group on a mission for children

From Press Reports

Webster County has been blessed with the formation of a new community- based organization, Eupora Community Outreach Ministry, whose mission is to focus on the needs of children.

For example, the ministry sponsored a back-to-school event that included a program and school supply giveaway on Aug. 5.

The ministry’s next project is to provide a Children’s Christmas Giveaway. This project will provide children with clothes and toys. The group has developed guidelines for the distribution of these items.

In order to help as many children as possible, the ministry is encouraging the community’s support and participation through donations. The need to focus on children brought about the community outreach ministry as the result of an ongoing ministerial alliance of members from local churches. Therefore, the group decided to help fulfill the void as a need surfaces, one project at a time.

The group consists of Louise Woodard, Earnestene Patterson, Pastor Jean Bingham, Ella Dumas, Faye Butler and Denise Perkins.
