Donating hats, gloves, and new socks to children in need. Many are homeless or living with parents who have lost jobs. One item will make a difference.

This year Alec's scout troop needed to finish up their 'citizinship in the community' merit badge, so they called us and asked if they could help pass out our For The Warmth of the Children flyers to the neighborhood. Alec was so thankful! They met early Saturday morning and had donuts and orange juice. What a tremendous group of boys.

Carter shared in the juice and ran off to his game. We'll have to put him to work in another neighborhood!
Alec assigned the routes and divided the flyers.
Tanner, Alec, Josh, Jordan, Ryan and Colton were such troopers.
And off they went.
Thank you so much Rodayne and Marcus! Along with all those scouts, they knocked it out!

The Flyer is Out!

“For the Warmth of the Children” 2009

5 years ago Alec (13) started a fundraiser to help collect and donate Gloves, Hats, and Socks for children who are in need for the winter months. He has since gained the help of his brother, Carter (10) and sister, Savannah (7). Most of you have donated in the past and we appreciate each of you for doing so. Every year it seems to become more special as we hear the stories of the families and children who are on the receiving end of this fundraiser. This year again, they will be given to the children within our own Jordan School District. Please understand what a difference this can make this year!

We are currently asking for donations of new or gently used Hats and Gloves and NEW Socks only.

Please become part of this special mission a young boy came up with years ago.
Thank you all so very much!

Drop off location – Johnson home (call or e-mail please)

*We will collect until Friday November 13th and will deliver on Friday November 20th, so the children can have them for Thanksgiving!
