It’s amazing the children were able to raise that much money just from loose change.
Windsor, North Carolina (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
The children of United Outreach Ministries’ Tater Patch have raised $1,045 for charity. The Tater Patch is a children’s ministry that focus on charitable missions. Aside from that, the children also learn Bible stories from Jennie Conner, who uses methods like puppets and storytelling to give the children constructive activities. The children in the ministry range from ages 4 to 12.
For approximately 10 weeks starting in January 2013, about 20 children in the ministry raised money by collecting spare change in baby bottles. They sacrificed some of their free time to gather change from people. Jennie Conner, a leader of the ministry, was surprised and pleased with the results. “It’s amazing the children were able to raise that much money just from loose change.”
The money will provide a boost to the Adullam House, which supports children whose parents are in prison. They reportedly will use the money to build a playground. The money will also flow to additional needs as they come up. The Adullam House (http://www.adullamhouse.org) was founded by Pete and Angie Spackman, who came to the United States from Great Britain to minister in Alabama prisons. They wanted to help take care of children whose parents went to prison, hoping that with help those children wouldn’t follow the same path.
