Spreading Joy and Hope to Kids!

With the COVID-19 pandemic wreaking havoc on normal summer kid’s activities, Campaign Against Human Trafficking and Domestic Violence (CAHT) jumped at the chance to support Beth-El Farmworker Ministry summer camp program and Bible school activities for kids. Social distancing limited close interaction with the children so Beth-El came up with a great solution in offering drive-by goody grab bags to kids and their families called Cedarkirk Camp at Home Boxes. Each bag or box contained books, jewelry, art and craft items, t-shirts, jump ropes, masks, toys, and wholesome snacks.  Over 60 bags and boxes were handed out Wednesday morning, July 15.  Most of the participating kids are from migrant families and are on scholarships to attend summer camp. CAHT contributed books, crafts and fun jewelry made by board member, Jean Harrison.  “The grab bags give them something to do as well as showing the families and kids that we are here for them,” says CAHT president, Annie Garrison.  “We have a well-established relationship with Beth-El and always enjoy supporting their many programs for families.  Over the last two months we have funded their new Wimauma referral hotline program, school backpacks, and assisted struggling families with rental assistance or domestic abuse related issues.”  For more information about Beth-El Farmworker Ministry, contact MaryEllen at outreach@beth-el.org or call 813-633-1548.
