K-Kids, a group of select 2nd through 4th graders at Germantown Elementary school who have joined with the Kiwanis Club to serve underserved children, presented Heather McGugan of The Forsaken Children with a check for $1,800 on Friday, May 18. This was the culmination of their work to promote “Chicks For Change” and raise money for the chicken hatchery in Chencha, Ethiopia, that our own Jon and Jess Bridges have started.
The purpose of this hatchery is to provide sustainable support for our partners in Ethiopia who work with at-risk children. So it is a perfect match with the stated purpose of the Kiwanis Club and for the K-Kids group at Germantown Elementary school.
The children went above and beyond expectations and brought great joy to Ms. Jordan and Ms. Feathers, their sponsors for K-Kids. Ms. Feathers is Nicci Feathers, who has been to Onesimus, our partner in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and worked with our children there. She is planning on returning in June with a team from Central Church.
We are very grateful to the K-Kids group at Germantown Elementary and say thank you on behalf of the children of Ethiopia who will be beneficiaries of this generosity. Together, we can make a difference.
