Thank you Bible campers for your generosity

I wanted to take a minute to thank all the children and their families as well as the 100+ volunteers that participated in the Community Bible Camp . I am completely blown away by your generosity.With a boys against girls challenge, these kids collected more then $3000 in change which will directly help to change the lives of children experiencing homelessness in our community. I have heard stories of little ones emptying their piggy banks and adults lives being inspired and impacted by these kids.Never underestimate the power of children , change , and a challenge! What a kind, generous, caring community we live in!  — Jess Hartfiel, Elk River (Editor’s note: Hartfiel is the executive director of Great River Family Promise, a homeless outreach)
