Joy2theWorld is pleading for your help!  We need a safe way to bring the children to school every day.  Many more children will come if we can provide transportation.   We can also put this to good use on our field trips!

Rose is a member of our Entrepreneur’s Club. She bakes pastries for us when we hold our Open Forums. This means she is baking at least 150 pastries to arrive by 9 a.m. These pastries are filled with a little meat, which was a surprise for me. I was expecting a fruit turnover. This trip […]
