Ministry of Caring Needs Help This Holiday Season

The Ministry of Caring does a wonderful job in our community providing shelter, child care centers and the Emmanuel Dining Room.  There are many people who need the daily basics we all take for granted, just to survive.

Here are photos from the Holiday Event held at the University & Whist Club on Sunday, December 6 to raise funds for Ministry of Caring programs.
