Recently, the children who attended The Salvation Army in Irving summer day camp, raised money to purchase goats for The Salvation Army in Kenya! By participating in a variety of fundraising activities from car washes to cleaning up several neighbors' yards, the children raised $313!
Can a goat really help someone in Kenya? Yes! Goats nourish hungry children and families with healthy milk, cheese, and yogurt. Goats also give a much-needed income boost by providing offspring and extra dairy products for sale at the market.
The children were eager to present their hard-earned check to Major Brenda Raymer. Major Raymer will send the money to a Salvation Army officer in Kenya, who will purcahse the goats for a family in need-- see video below of Salvation Army officer and goat recipient!
