Each Mother’s Day, the Presbyterian Women sell Mother’s Day cards for a suggested offering of $10 each. The proceeds go to a mission to help mothers. Usually that mission has been overseas, but this year we are keeping it local. The proceeds will go to the Sixpence Early Learning Fund here in Hastings. More than 30,000 of Nebraska’s infants and toddlers are at risk of arriving at their first day of kindergarten developmentally unprepared to learn and thrive. Sixpence is changing the odds in their favor. The Sixpence Early Learning Fund is Nebraska’s signature effort to put our state’s youngest and most vulnerable children on the path to success in school and life. Sixpence promotes high-quality early care and learning opportunities that help parents guide the healthy development of their infants and toddlers.
Women from our church will be selling cards Sunday, April 29, and Sunday, May 6 in the Memorial Room. Cards will also be available for purchase in the church office Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. -4:30 p.m. thru the week of April 30. Please stop by and help us help the young women of Hastings.
