Candy Grams for Boys and Girls Homes of NC

Don't forget to stop by Rhonda's Cafe this week to get a Holiday Candy Gram!  We will deliver the candy to a locker for just $1.  All proceeds go to support Christmas for the Children at the Boys and Girls Homes of NC.  Help us support our district project, raising money for gifts for the children at B&G Homes at Lake Waccamaw, North Carolina.  Children from birth to 18 are in transitional stages between foster care or permanently in a group home until adoption.
