We’re excited to kick off our 7th Annual Sierra Full of Joy on Sunday, December 1st! Sierra Full of Joy is our annual donation drive to help local foster children. Each year we take up donations for THE Call of Crawford & Sebastian Counties.
The state of Arkansas has nearly 5,000 children in foster care, more than 900 of those are in Sebastian & Crawford counties at any given time. As a
matter of fact, we have on average 200 more kids in foster care in Sebastian & Crawford counties than Pulaski county, which has a population over twice the size of our two counties combined.
The CALL has an important mission to educate, equip and encourage the Christian community to provide a future and a hope for the children in
foster care. They do a great job of not only recruiting foster parents, but also supporting them in the most needed ways. As they state, The CALL is mobilizing Christians from multiple denominations and churches in local communities around Arkansas to meet the needs of local children in foster care. Recruiting families is our priority, however, we know that not every Christian is called to foster or adopt. The CALL works with local churches to assemble a support team of volunteers to wrap around their foster and adoptive families. We also try to connect churches with other opportunities to serve children in foster care.
This is the 7th year for Sierra Full of Joy. Everyone who has generously given has helped make the holidays better for local kids & that’s always a great thing. Each year we’ve driven that GMC Sierra into our showroom with the hopes of filling it up for the Holidays we’ve been blown away by the outpouring of donations of needs, gifts, and cash. It is our hope that Sierra Full of Joy 7 builds on the success of past years & once again breaks records for donations.
Below I’ll post the wish lists THE Call as well as a few pics of our past Sierra Full of Joy events. This year The CALL has requested that in lieu of exclusively buying gift for the children we would donate much-needed supplies & necessities as well as Gas, Grocery, Dinner & Family Entertainment Gift Cards for the families.
Our Hours are M-F 7:30a-7P, Sat. 9a-6p & Sunday 12p-5p. Please feel free to drop off your donations anytime between now & December 16th. They will be picking up the donations on the 17th.
