Red Oak Community News
Girls in Action and Children in Action members from the North Roanoke Baptist Association joined together on Saturday morning at the Associational Center in Dortches to pack 580 red boxes for the women at Fountain Correctional Center. This is an annual project of the NRBA Woman’s Missionary Union to provide Christmas gift boxes filled with shampoo, body wash, note pads, socks, bath sponges and other assorted items for the women which will be presented to them during two Christmas parties.

During a break from the packing, two inmates from the Center visited and talked with the children and leaders about the importance of the boxes. They shared that for some women this would be their only Christmas gift and it meant a lot to all of them to know that someone was thinking about them and cared enough to provide these gifts. They also enjoyed refreshments of Christmas cookies and punch.

A special thank you to everyone who participated from Dortches, Fishing Creek, Elm Grove, Calvary RM, West Mount, Red Oak, Oakdale and Oak Level churches and to Jean Mellor, Shelia Alligood, Debbie Sullivan and Larry, Jeanette, Kirby and Hazel Hill who helped unpack the items on Friday.

A Thanksgiving service will be held on Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. at the Red Oak United Methodist Church. Everyone’s invited.

Our sympathy to Lucille Fisher and family in the loss of her husband, Lewis Fisher.
