The start of the school year finds Sara sorting donated school supplies. Each year as teachers clean out their rooms, usable school supplies are frequently thrown away. Sara now receives donations from ten elementary schools which she then redistributes to the schools FBC supports: Oak Springs Elementary and Overton Elementary (named for long-time member of FBC, Volma Overton). One young middle school teacher was given supplies for her geography students that are not able to afford school supplies.
Maggie Johnson Nursing Center. Once a month there is a program for the residents, perhaps a style show. Sara's granddaughter organized a group of friends and her brothers to act out a story as it is read to the residents. Sara also has shared the many donations of clothes that appear at her front door with the gentleman that provides security for the church on Wednesday nights.
Sara even has a car wash ministry. Near her home is a car wash. One cold, wet day, she realized that the employees needed warm, dry socks. She also drops off fruit and other snacks as many of the employees do not have the funds for lunch. Sara sees need and stops, where most of us just drive on by.
