Birthday for Fernando

Posted on Jun 22, 2011 in Met Needs, News, Testimonials |

Here is a picture of Fernando.  Today is Fernando’s birthday.  He’s opening a birthday present that is part of a Birthday Bag he received from a member of Christ Evangelical Presbyterian Church.

Soon after coming to Mission Centers of Houston, Executive Director, Ginger Smith, realized that for many families in her community, a birthday celebration, party or gift of any kind for a child’s birthday was something they could not afford.  So, she dreamed up Birthday Bags.  Birthday Bags not only contain a birthday gift, but also have cake mix, frosting, candles, a baking pan, paper goods and favors – everything you need for a birthday celebration!

Get Together Table Leaders and Board Members, Frank & Sandy Kampe began coordinating the Birthday Bag project at CEPC several years ago.  Members of CEPC have embraced this project and in 2010-2011 provided birthday bags for 313 kids who are served by Mission Centers of Houston’s three Centers.

Happy Birthday, Fernando!
