'Get Up & Give' 2011 effort a success06-03-2011
During its Get Up & Give campaign for 2011, Methodist Family Health collected items for clients who arrive at one of the organization’s behavioral healthcare facilities without basic necessities.
Local churches and mission groups from across the state provided such items by participating in “40 Days of Collecting,” which coincided with Lent, the 40 days leading up to Easter.
Methodist Family Health’s Little Rock counseling clinic on May 1 served as the final drop-off location, where volunteers enjoyed a celebration, complete with live music from FaithSpring UMC’s praise band, while they sorted donated items.
In addition to more than 100 large bins of toiletries and other necessities, cash donations to Get Up & Give 2011 totaled nearly $3,000.
