The story...

The Wallace family lived together in a mobile home in the Moore’s Mill area. Mr. and Mrs. Wallace, their 2 sons, their daughter and her child all lived together. During the recent tornado, they lost their home, vehicles, and almost all of their possessions when the tornado tore through their property. They had just finished paying off the mobile home, and are completely uninsured. They are currently both on disability. Many of you have probably heard their story on the news. What brought our attention to this family specifically was the fact that they have no insurance policy to replace what was lost.

Response: We believe that it is our job as Christians to extend the grace and blessings that have been poured out on us to bless those around us in time of need. If this is not living out the true meaning of the Gospel, what is? In Matthew 25, Jesus teaches that when we meet the needs of those around us, it is as if we are doing it unto Him. At Central Kids for Christ this year, we have
been talking about the importance of being a LIGHT to the world. What a great way to shine the LIGHT by giving to this family in response and thanksgiving to what God has already blessed us
with. Kids for Christ would like to partner with the rest of our Central family, community, churches, and businesses to make a difference in the lives of the Wallace family. Please help us get the word out by reproducing this flyer and/or sharing the information in your neighborhood,
churches, sports teams, and families!

How can you help? We are challenging our community to not just
try to raise funds for this family, but to reach our ultimate goal of RAISING
ENOUGH FUNDS TO BUY THIS FAMILY A MOBILE HOME. This is a very large family, and their biggest need is a place to live. That sounds like a lofty goal, but we know
that we live in a community that can make this possible. It is our prayer that this love that we pour out on the Wallace family will reflect the love of our Savior!
