I keep hearing about this WOFCC. What is it? Why should I care?
I don’t know much about the Western Oklahoma Family Care Center, but what I have heard is good; well, except the part about needing more money. That’s a little sad.
It would only take a little from each person to help those in the community who can’t keep their heads above water. I think I want to give something but want to know a little more.
Great! Here are two things that will help.
First, visit the website. It is simple but explanatory. You will find that it’s more than just help with bills and food. There is a medical and dental clinic and a pharmacy. Wow!
And here is the thing that might just get you to the point where you say, “Yes! I want to be a part of that. I want to donate money or time or something else.”
What’s the thing? The WOFCC doesn’t just give out money. There is a process that involves meeting with people about their relationship with God, godly living—especially in the area of budget, and getting a plan to get out of poverty.
Most effective ministries embrace this concept: We meet people where they are. Very effective ministries are not content with throwing them some help and leaving them there.
The WOFCC is this community’s compassionate ministry and has its sights set on leading people to a better life. The Family Care Center helps people in need now with the goal of seeing them become productive and contributing citizens in the future.
Second, come to the WOFCC fundraiser on the 10th of November. A ticket is only $25. If you go to a political fundraiser, those tickets are $2,500 and you have to listen to a politician. Tickets to the WOFCC fundraiser are only $25 and you can meet the board members and other donors in the community and see for yourself that the Western Oklahoma Family Care Center is something that is calling you to donate, volunteer, or otherwise participate.
Where can I get my ticket?
Tom Spence will be at Christi’s Thrift Store on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. selling and signing his books to support the WOFCC. He will have tickets with him.
You can also stop by the WOFCC and purchase a ticket there.
