Boy Scouts earn badge, help Brisben!

James, 15, and Adam, 12, each earned their Boy Scout "Citizenship in the Community" badge by conducting a huge donation drive to benefit the Brisben Center! With help from their fellow scouts in Boy Scout Troop 179, the brothers set up outside of Walmart at SouthPoint and worked all day on June 11. They gathered an extraordinary amount of donated items. In addition to the donated products, they also collected and donated $184.

Salem Fields children fill intake bags

Melissa and Michelle, children's ministry leaders at Salem Fields Community Church, dropped off 60 intake bags of toys and treats at the Brisben Center for new children coming into our community’s 80-bed, emergency homeless shelter. The bags were a project by the children from the church's ministry. Thank you SFCC kids for caring about Brisben’s children!
