a Bed 4 Me Foundation Presentation

Ginger Davis, Co-founder of A Bed 4 Me Foundation provided a presentation relating to the need for beds for children in the local community. She stressed the importance of a child having their own space and how it improves their education and life.

During the past 2 months, our Youth Group under the guidance of the Christian Education (CE) Committee along with the Witness & Outreach Committee organized a sheet & bedding drive for a Bed 4 Me Foundation. They were presented with over 50 bedding sets collected from members of The First Presbyterian Church FWB.
