The kids attending camp this summer at First Baptist Church in Watsonville raised over 3200 meals for people in need simply by collecting change. Approximately 80 kids participated in the vacation bible school led by director Heidi Barnes. A friendly competition of boys versus girls spurred the kids on, as well as a promised match by the church.
The kids collected $400 in change; with the match from the church they were able to donate $800. This is a great idea for kids of all ages, enabling even the youngest to make a contribution. Second Harvest can provide four healthy meals for every $1 donated, so no amount is too small to make a difference in our community.
Thanks to everyone at First Baptist Church for your generous donation.
