May 10, 2019 - Jonathan Liker, a Shelby County Outreach Ministries (SCOM) fundraiser committee member, drew the name of Ginia Hooper for the winner of the Mother's Day Gift Basket raffle on Friday, May 10, 2019 at the Senior Nutrition Site.
Ginia Hooper wasn't present at the drawing; however, her mother, Ann Hooper, was at the Senior Nutrition Site! Mrs. Hooper was delighted to be able to deliver the Mother's Day basket to her daughter!
Sherry Harding, SCOM Executive Director, express appreciation, "We would just like to thank all the people who have bought raffle tickets; these proceeds go to help support the ministries we have in place. Because of raffles like this, we were able to feed 16,888 meals to senior citizens last year, assist 4,062 needs in the community, giving out 3,312 emergency food boxes which feed 6,582 people."
The senior meals are provided through the Senior Nutrition Site and the Meals on Wheels Program. The food boxes are provided through the Helping Hands program. The food distributed through the Helping Hands is estimated at $165,600.
Shelby County Today and Shelby County Outreach Ministries would like to wish all mothers a "Happy and Blessed Mother's Day!"
