Cooper-Anthony Mercy Child Advocacy Center benefits from Crossgate event

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Each school year, every Crossgate Christian Academy (CCA) class participates in a “care and share” event where they go out into the community to serve mankind in some capacity.

Fortunately for St. Joseph’s Mercy Health Center, the Cooper-Anthony Mercy Child Advocacy Center was the beneficiary of the CCA second graders’ 2005-06 “care and share” event. The CCA second grade class donated travel-size toiletries for the children who enter the state’s foster care system as a result of coming to the Center and also made stepping stones for its new private healing garden.

Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse of Hot Springs donated the sack-crete to make the stepping stones and each of the second-grade children used marbles, craft beads, rocks and letters to spell out sayings in them. In addition, during their visit to the Cooper-Anthony Child Advocacy Center, the CAC second graders were given an educational tour of the facility.

“We at St. Joseph’s are very thankful that the Crossgate second graders made the Cooper-Anthony Mercy Child Advocacy Center the beneficiary of their ‘care and share’ event,” said Kathy Taylor, Executive Director of the Mercy Health Foundation. “The Center will always need all types of support, and this is a great way for the kids to learn about philanthropy and giving back.”
