Halloween Outreach 2009

We, here at Ordinary Hero, are gearing up for our 2009 Halloween outreach. We will be bringing the Moms and their children that reside at the Nashville Rescue Mission out for a day of fun and fellowship to our annual Fall Festival at Bethel World Outreach Center, Franklin campus.

We have held this outreach annually since 2006. This gives the children that reside at the homeless shelter a wonderful opportunity to escape their reality for a few hours and enjoy just being kids. The kids will provide us with their top 3 choices of what they would like to dress up as for Halloween. We then provide each child with a costume of their choosing. You can't imagine how excited these little ones become as they get to dress up as their favorite super hero or princess and enjoy a day of fun filled kid adventures. The Moms and kids will be bused in for the Fall festival from 12-4 on Saturday, October 31, 2009.

This outreach has been proven year after year to not only provide a day of fun for both Mom and child, but we have seen relationships formed, opportunities for help arise, and hearts being touched by love and kindness. Many who volunteer often say that it changes their lives to have their eyes opened to the need right here in our own community. Many times these Moms and their children are forgotten. Many do not even realize that there are homeless mothers and children that live right here in Music City. This outreach has formed relationships which then open the doors for many to be helped all the way through Christmas and for years to come.

Let's join together and make a difference that can create memories that will last a lifetime for these children. For many of these children, this will be the first costume that they have ever had. If you would like to be an Ordinary Hero to a child in need by donating $22(paypal deduction included) to a child that will go toward the purchase of a costume ,

  1. Kelly,

    I still want to get together to hear your story. What would you think of doing a night, much like we used to do with Katie, to talk about OH, TRS, and whatever else you want to call people to?
