    Donations and Memorial Gifts
    Argyle Bible Church ladies did a diaper drive for us. They collected 10 packages and 2 big boxes of size 3 & 4 diapers. The moms or dads are allowed
one dozen diapers a week with their blessing bucks. Thank you Argyle ladies! What a blessing for our parents!

    This past November 2017, Dot Foods donated $5,000.00 worth of food to Tri-State. We were able to order from their list what we wanted and they even delivered it! Thank you Dot Foods!

    The Carthage Primary School did a food drive this past fall and choose to donate over 3,000 items to our food pantry. Another blessing and testimony of God providing. We praise Him for all blessings.

    We thank all the people that worked on putting together and those who participated in the Great River Road Run. We received $1,300.00 to go towards our food pantry. This money will help us to be able to continue our efforts in providing support to the community.

    We have been blessed with three memorials. Several years after Glen’s passing we were blessed with a nice gift in memory of Glen Smiddy. We sure miss him. Glen served on our board of directors for years and still others are giving in his name. Thank you so much.

We also received a generous gift from Joan Ufkes. It was requested to purchase food for cats and dogs. Anyone who knew Joan knew she loved animals. We offer this in our food pantry. Thank you for considering us during your loss.

A donation was given in memory of Donna Metternich. We appreciate all the gifts given in memory of family members. 

Open Table

We are doing a program out of Arizona called Open Table. We have spoken about this at our banquet. If you have not attended one of our banquet it basically is a group of individuals called the Open Table who come alongside a
brother or sister and help them meet goals that they set for themselves. We just finished with a couple and they did amazing! They reached so many of their goals and it was fun to watch them grow together. They are planning on sharing at our banquet this year. Please come and hear what they have to share. We are ready for our next brother or sister. It is a year commitment for everyone and is a great support system as they strive to meet their goals.
