Church Helps East Texas Families

by Larry Little

Clawson Assembly of God Church Senior Pastor Kevin Poage is reaching out to East Texas families in need this Christmas. The tables in the church have been turned into storage shelves for baby formula, diapers, and wool sweaters. It looks like a store.

The church received a donation earlier this week of over $30,000 in items. Now, they are hoping to help less fortunate families in deep East Texas who otherwise would have to go without this Christmas.

"Anyone who wants to can come and be a part of it and, hopefully, it will be a blessing for someone's Christmas who may be in a pinch this year. We'd just like to bless someone and show acts of kindness and God's love," says Pastor Poage.

Brenda Dollar's family had a difficult year. She is amazed Pastor Poage will help her enjoy the Christmas holidays with her three children. "Wow! Wow! That's all I can say about someone who is very grateful and generous. It warms my heart and makes me feel good," says Brenda Dollar.
