This is the first of two Agape Ranch bed build events this year.
At St. Andrews Episcopal Church in Karalen, more than 60 volunteers created a good old fashion assembly line to make beds for children.
The event was so popular that they had to close their volunteer registration early on.
“What I like is to bring our community together. There are 18 different churches here, here,” said Gerald Phelps, a fifth-year volunteer and priest at St Andrews. We believe there are seven different community organizations. We will help you make these beds, so when we need to donate in our community, we will help those Satoko. I can.”
The bed is made to fit in CarePortal.. Beds are the most needed item, as it is a place that families in need of foster and adopted appliances can request.
Wesbebury, the first volunteer and pastor of the Yorktown Baptist Church, said, “That’s the whole purpose and that’s why I’m here. That’s why everyone is here is a need to meet. Knowing that there is. Your community. And there is something we can do to really influence that need. “
“You know that it means the world. As Christians, what we need is to help our brothers and sisters when they need them. And they are placed with their families. Beds are the most requested item to be them for these foster children when they are, and it’s great to be able to meet their needs. Also, meet and be with the family. It also gives me the opportunity to pray. “
Volunteers were able to make 12 beds. Agaperanchi was able to purchase 15 mattresses from the mattress farm using the money received from the Coastal Bend Day of Giving.
“It’s very important for children to know that they are loved, and sometimes it’s not possible for them to serve in the family,” said Shannon Murphy, Community Relations Coordinator at Agaperanchi. It’s a place where we get together as a church to support children and families. It’s on a coastal corner. “
In bed builds, Nuces Electric Cooperative also donated $ 2,500 to Agape Ranch.
Construction of the next bed is scheduled for October at the Yorktown Baptist Church.
