Celebrating a Season of Hope/ August 30, 2019
NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation Celebrates Season of Hope
The NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation celebrates Season of Hope, an entire season of activities and events formerly known as Hope Week. Season of Hope is a community wide effort to highlight the spirit of hope and its importance in the life of Northeast Arkansas.
Individuals, groups and organizations are encouraged to spread Hope to those who need it most with activities, events and projects throughout the community. The initial “Hope Week” has grown, flourished and evolved into a “Season of Hope”.
September is World Hunger Awareness Month. September 1st through September 25th Friends of NEA Baptist will host an annual food drive to benefit the Jonesboro Helping Neighbors Food Pantry. Businesses around the city serve as donation sites along with all NEA Baptist Clinic locations.
September is also Ovarian Cancer Awareness month. First Security Bank and NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation present the annual Teal Talk luncheon September 18th, 11:30am-1pm, Southwest Church of Christ Better Life Center.
