Holiday Season

The Holidays are upon us. Thanksgiving is first. A time to thank God for all blessings he has bestowed on us. Then comes Christmas, a time to celebrate the birth of Christ Jesus. We understand that these days can place an added strain to families' budgets, especially those already strained.

We are planning a Thanksgiving distribution on November the 21st. I know that this is opening day of duck season but Melanie says that we must sacrifice. It is not really a sacrifice but a blessing to be able to serve!!!! Our goal is provide a touch of relief this holiday season so that the people in the Hughes community can see God's love through the HCOM.

Our donations have fallen some, but we are prepared to hold a good distribution helping families have a good meal and fellowship during these holidays. We plan on serving a large helping of the gospel during this time as well.

We are currently trying to secure turkeys and hams for our Christmas distribution with some success at this time.

We would like to invite anyone that desires to volunteer or make a financial or food donation to contact us at HCOM, P.O. Box1, Hughes, Arkansas 72348 or call 901-569-1744 or 870-339-4049.

May you all have a great Thanksgiving season.

God Bless You
