Most of you are aware of the April Food Roundup for the Baptist Children's Home and the postponement of this opportunity till August. This Food Roundup meets a very critical need for the children of the Baptist Children's Home. The BBA would like to ask our churches or individuals to consider donating gift cards from Walmart or Food Lion during the months of May and June, Please mail these gift cards to the Buncombe Baptist Association at 227 Hazel Mill Road, Asheville, NC 28806. These gift cards will be hand delivered at the end of June to the Broyhill Campus in Clyde. This will meet a critical need at this time until we are able to receive food in August.
