Crockpot Wednesday: February 21, 2018: Methodist Family Health



Kelli Reep from Methodist Family Health was on to talk about their initiative to help the kids there at their facilities. From their website: The 9th Annual Get Up & Give collection project asks Arkansans to contribute necessities to the children and families in our care. The project is during the entire 40 days of Lent – Wed., Feb. 14 through Thurs., Mar. 29 – and both children and adults can participate by donating personal hygiene items, clothes, shoes, school supplies, bedding, funds and other necessities to the Methodist Counseling Clinic in their community.

Here’s Kelli’s fabulous recipe:
