Christmas Day was a big deal for me when I was growing up. I was the youngest of eight children, and my parents bought a lot of Christmas gifts for us. When I woke up on Christmas morning, generally before anyone else, I would rush into our living room where our big Christmas tree would be sparkling in all its glory. Ten piles of presents would be strategically placed on chairs, the floor, and covering the couch. It was a present extravaganza! With all those gifts, my parents did not bother to wrap most of them. Looking closely, I could tell which pile of presents was for me because my parents knew what each of their children needed or wanted.Read More

We had recently suffered from a flood in our Mount Pleasant, Michigan group home—the Bellows Home. The flood waters were ankle deep in the lower, furnished level of the home.
This year for Food Shower, we are especially asking for Aldi gift cards.
Our group homes are close to Aldi, and they have a good selection at the nearby stores. Would you send in an Aldi gift card to help with the purchase of fresh groceries year round? Gift cards can be purchased in Aldi stores.
Cards can be mailed to our office: Baptist Children's Home, 354 West St., Ste 1, Valparaiso, IN 46383.
Gift cards to other major retailers (Wal-mart, Meijer, Amazon, etc.) are also welcome!
