To the Editor:
The Board of Directors of the Gap Assistance Program of Ray County, Inc. would like to thank the following organizations and churches for their support and assistance in providing both cash and products which have helped our program assist Ray County families in need!
Without this help it would not have been possible to start this new program in Ray County. Our mission is to help Ray County families fill the GAP that exists between services available and needs. Again, we offer our thanks to these organizations and churches and we look forward to their continuing support.
The following have contributed cash: Ray Masonic Lodge #223, Deacons of the First Baptist Church of Richmond, Ada Masonic Lodge #444, Richmond Masonic Lodge #57, Bee Hive Masonic Lodge # 393, Rayville Christian Union Mission, Richmond Rotary and Lawson Christian-Presbyterian Church.
The following have provided products: Richmond United Methodist Church, Cotton Creek Christian Ministries, Sunrise Elementary School, Dear Elementary School, Hickory Grove Baptist Church, Knoxville Community Church, Richmond Christian Union Mission Church, Lawson Christian-Presbyterian Church and Preceptor Gamma Theta Sorority.
Thank you again,
– Don Lake
President of the board
Editor’s note: An April 2013 Richmond News story noted the GAP program provides diapers, as well as items such as baby lotion, shampoo, wipes, toothpaste, Clorox wipes, soap and toilet paper.
