East Texas Methodist group cooking tea cakes for good cause

DIBOLL, TX (KTRE) - A group of Angelina Churches are coming together to help out one of their own.

The Shared Ministry of Angelina County United Methodist Churches are baking heart shaped tea cakes to help out a member of one of the churches.

The tea cakes are being made to raise money for David Ray Krunk. Krunk's grandparents live in the Diboll area. Krunk is currently living in Dallas and waiting for a heart transplant.

"He's 34 years-old," said Burke UMC member Pam Burnnett. "He battled childhood leukemia and the chemo damaged his heart. Now he is on an artificial heart awaiting a transplant."

The group is made up of members from Diboll UMC, Burke UMC, Ryan Chapel UMC and St.Paul's UMC. The group had all the supplies donated so all of the money raised will go to the family.

This is just the latest project the tea cakes have helped. Over the last six years, the group has picked various charitable events to help out with.

"The big one is that we have done Haiti for two years, raising over $5,000," Burnnett said. "We've done some for Lakota Indian children, we've done Oklahoma City tornado victims and we've done West Texas when they had the explosion."

The group is selling the cakes for $5 per dozen. Anyone interested in buying some, can call Diboll UMC at 936-829-4470.

The group is taking orders until March 11.
