KLRC Teams with Ministry
Siloam Springs, Ark. (August 5, 2005) — John Brown University’s FM radio station, 101.1 KLRC, along with Chick-fil-A, and Mother-to-Mother Ministry of Northwest Arkansas will hold a school supply drive on Saturday, Aug.13 from noon until 2:00 p.m. at Chick-fil-A in Fayetteville, Ark. Backpacks, crayons, pencils, glue, markers, notebook paper and much more is needed. Simply pick up a school supply list from your local school, and purchase any items listed and bring them to Chick-fil-A. All supplies donated will benefit Mother-to-Mother Ministry of Northwest Arkansas. Mother-to-Mother helps single, low-income mothers strengthen themselves and their families by offering one-on-one mentoring and other support services. Mother-to-Mother offers a friendship circle to many women who have never experienced a healthy relationship and who do not know the true meaning of trust. Mother-to-Mother established a “mommy dollar” program where the mothers can earn “money” by having a job, attending school or church, reading to their children, and much more. They can spend their "mommy dollars" in the in-kind warehouse to buy clothing, diapers, toilet paper, and other items that are donated to Mother-to-Mother.
