The Glade Valley congregation in Walkersville, MD, one of OEP’s blessed community groups, adopted 21 homeless highschoolers during this Christmas season and stuffed stockings for them with masks and many other valuable gifts.
The stockings were delivered last Tuesday, December 29th, to their new homes, each holding about $50 worth of gifts. Glade Valley was ecstatic about the number of community members, both from the church and the greater community, who joined in to help create these important gifts for the underprivileged youth.
Glade Valley also spent time this Christmas Season sending cards to Fahrney- Keedy Memorial Home and Village, an assisted living facility and rehabilitation center in Boonsboro, MD. OEP honors this congregation's work towards equity and thanks to them for giving hope during the strange and turbulent holiday season of 2020.
