It’s become a tradition at Trinity to provide summer recreational and educational opportunities for the children at the Madison Youth Ranch. Last year, groups and individuals in the church generously contributed funds to purchase memberships at the YMCA for both cottages, passes for movies, Sky Zone, bowling, roller skating, the Tallahassee Museum, and state parks, and gift cards for fast food restaurants. According to Ruth Moore, the Ranch Administrator, these activities enriched the children’s lives during their summer vacation.
During the month of May, we would like to raise enough funds to do as much or more for the children this summer. If you’d like to contribute to this initiative, contact Gloria Colvin (firstname.lastname@example.org) or stop by the Welcome Center between 9:30 and 11:00 any Sunday in May. The Ranch is a campus of the Florida United Methodist Children’s Home, a mission collectively supported by all of the United Methodist churches in Florida. It provides a loving, caring home for children who are unable to stay with their families due to illness, death, abuse, or addiction and uses equine-assisted therapy as part of its program to foster physical and m mental health.
You can also help by bringing these items, which can be left at the Welcome Center clearly marked “Madison Ranch.” • Shampoo • Body wash • Stick Deodorant • Kleenex • AA and AAA batteries • Dish cloths & dish towels.
