One-day fundraiser deemed a success
The Rev. Melanie Dees Campbell of Ark Ministries led a one-day fundraiser last Friday, Oct. 5, for the Marshall Ministerial Alliance benevolent fund and the MSSDAR Light of Love project to raise funds toward the purchase of a search and rescue dog, that will stay in Missouri, for Missouri Task Force 1.
Exemplifying were: Fran Arndt, Baptist; Barbara Taylor, Roman Catholic; Mary Jo and David Proctor, Christian; and Matthew Wolfe, South Side Assembly of God.
Each did their part from transporting items, setting up tables and selling to make the one-day sale a huge success.
Those in the community that attended purchased antiques, collectibles and a variety of items, and also received prayer and free items from crutches to stuffed animals.
Minister Campbell said, “All will be blessed to know that the $500 raised from the estate fundraiser has been divided equally between two worthy causes. I want to thank everyone in Marshall for their caring, loving spirits, and support.”
