SEPTEMBER STEWARDSHIP SUNDAY PROGRAM In September, we have a wonderful and much needed opportunity to help Hurricane Laura evacuees from Lake Charles, Louisiana who have been resettled to Camp Gilmont in Gilmer, Texas for an indefinite time. These eighty (80) residents are adults with development disabilities who are housed in group homes with their care givers and all of them desperately need our help. About one third (1/3) of the evacuees are wheelchair bound and all need 24/7 care with help for basic living skills.
BTPC can provide help in two ways; first with financial support by donating to gilmont.org to help offset the minimum $50 per guest per day to cover costs for meal service and other operational costs. Or in the alternative, donate needed basic health items as requested - hand sanitizer, shampoo, shaving cream, razors and soap. If you desire to provide any of the requested items, please drop them at the BTPC office between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday (September 15th through 17th). The items will be hand delivered by Ryan Snitzer when he attends Camp Gilmont’s 80th Birthday Celebration.
Many of BTPC’s children and youth have attended Camp Gilmont and have shared in fun, fellowship and faith in this very special place. Thank you for your support of our September Stewardship Sunday effort.
