PRECIOUS PUMKINS

 

One of the great things about being involved with We Care, Inc. is the opportunity to see how engaged the community is in the Baby Contest.  Each year at Pumpkin Festival time the We Care mailbox is filled with baby pictures. When we set up the picture display at the Morton Kroger, the excitement begins.  Store employees and early morning shoppers take a peek at the photo array of beautiful children. These boys and girls are We Care’s youngest helpers for the programs we offer the community.  

Each child receives one vote for each penny raised in donations corresponding to the child’s registration number, either online or deposited at the picture display.  Votes from the community, family and friends raise money to help provide Special Transportation for seniors and persons with disabilities. Also to help offset the cost of Meals-On-Wheels delivered in Morton Township or as support for the food pantry for those persons in the community that requires a helping hand.
