We will have a bake sale on Oct 24th during coffee hour. It is to benefit a young lady, Cayla and her newborn daughter Jaikyla. She was in a car accident at 6 months pregnant, an went into a coma. The baby was born soon after and was in the NICU until
a month ago. Cayla is still in a nursing home and not out of the coma as of yet.
Jaikyla is now at home with her grandparents. The medical bills are horrendous (to
say the least). Please come buy some goodies and help us help this family.
