Penny-Miles-colorThe Agape Women’s LIFE class at LaGrange Baptist Church is collecting pennies for the ‘Mile of Pennies’ campaign for Sunrise Children’s Services (formerly Kentucky Baptist Children’s Homes).  Anyone who would like to donate their pennies to help at-risk kids may give them to Jean Taylor or bring them to the Agape classroom in the Fellowship Hall.

Sunrise Children’s Services is a faith-based non-profit agency that cares for children and youth who have fallen victim to abuse or neglect. Sunrise operates 10 residential treatment facilities and therapeutic foster care homes throughout the state of Kentucky, as well as a crisis stabilization unit in Danville, a youth support center in London, and IMPACT Plus case management and service coordination for Medicaid-eligible children in western and central Kentucky. Through these programs, nearly 400 children are served each day. Adoption services and family counseling are also available. As a faith-based agency, we believe in treating the whole child – body and spirit – so they can grow up to break the cycle of abuse and become productive citizens.  See Sunrise’s website HERE.
