Alabama Baptist Children's Home Drop-off

As most of you know, for Will's first birthday, we had everyone bring donations for the Alabama Baptist Children's Home instead of gifts for Will. We were really excited to do this for Will's birthday!

Will and I went a couple of weeks ago to drop off all the things that we collected. It was quite a bit of stuff and filled up the 4Runner execpt for where Will and I were sitting.

I totally forgot to take pictures. The trip was a little demanding on me because we had to travel to Anniston to drop off the donation and Clay wasn't able to go with us. We got everything delivered and the administration staff seemed very appreciative.

They asked me what church I was from because they thought a whole church had taken up items. They were really surprised when I told them it was all donations from our family and friends for Will's birthday. I am so proud to call all of you friends because without you this donation wouldn't have been possible.

Here is a list of things we donated:

  • 2 sets of twin sheets
  • 3 packs of socks
  • 8 packs of underwear
