Immaculate Heart of Mary Supports Our Troops!
(High Point, NC) – June 11th, 2009 – This past Lent, the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic church’s Faith Formation honored our Operation: Birthday Cake cause by having a charitable drive for the soldiers. This wonderful group used very special “Easter Eggs” to help involve their congregation and it’s children. Each egg had a request for the child that day, including “Give someone a hug who needs it today!” and “Clean your room without being asked!” For each task completed, the child dropped the egg into a basket along with a quarter.
No doubt, The Immaculate Heart of Mary received a tremendous response to their outreach, raising hundreds of dollars to ensure that no Soldier would go without a cake on their birthday – no matter where they may be. Thank you Immaculate Heart of Mary! You are a role-model on what we should be doing in our own communities for Lent and throughout the year.
You too can get involved in Operation Birthday Cake! Setup a special event: silent auction, bake sale, whatever it may be! OR simply order a Freedom Cake from Bake Me A Wish!
