Today, we sent a prepaid VISA to a family whose son, Matthew, has a tumor on his spine.  He is in a lot of pain and has been traveling back and forth to The Cleveland Clinic to get treatment.  We hope this small gift card will help with some of their travel expenses.  Please pray for Matthew and his pain, as well as his family as they all go through this difficult time!

SACC Helps Out R Angel

Last Saturday, students from Swanton Area Community Coalition joined together to help make baskets and deliver food to the Toledo Children's Hospital for families staying there with their children.  They put together several baskets with bathroom supplies and stocked the waiting room with snacks and goodies for families to eat.  Thanks so much for all your help!

Sydnie's Project

Recently, our niece Sydnie completed a project for her 2nd grade class. Her teacher gave each student $5 and told each student to make a difference with that $5 however they wanted. Well, Sydnie decided to raise money for R Angel. She turned the $5 bill into change, then went around door-to-door and asked people if they had any spare change to make a "change" in the world. She told our story over and over & even made a cute little poster that she carried around. It amazes us how generous people are & how much money she raised by just asking for spare change. She ended up raising over $550, which was the most anyone in her teacher's class had ever done in 3 years! Thank you Sydnie for all your hard work & thank you everyone for all the donations! Many lives will be touched because of you all :)
