As many know all the proceeds form Rock the Ozarks this year were donated to New Beginning Children's Home.
We received a suggestion at the last club meeting to do a Toy Drive for New Beginning Children's Home. John and Marlene Carter posted a flyer on Facebook. Since that time Jeff spoke with Ken Ferguson with NBCH and they already have the kids covered for Christmas and he was concerned about giving too many presents. Another recommendation was to do something nice for the house parents. The month of December has been designated as "free weekends" for Marlin and Janet Hill. They are getting the weekends off to do "date nights" and such. John and Marlene agreed that it would be nice to take up a collection and offer to them as a gift from the club. Ken was really excited about this option, so we will "pass the hat" and then purchase a Visa Gift Card for them to use as needed for their enjoyment.
Thanks to John and Marlene for taking this on and getting it started. I believe this will be well received by NBCH.
Originally we were going to take donations at our club Christmas trail run and gathering. This event was cancelled due to weather and will not be rescheduled until after Christmas so if you would like to donate to this cause via Paypal or credit card you can do that with the button below. Just enter the amount you would like to donate and the club officers will take care of getting it to Ken. We need to try to get all donations in by early next week (12/17) to be able to get the donation to Ken before Christmas. If you would like to donate by cash or check please get your donation to one of the officers.
