Community Events

• Mother’s Day is May 12, and a small group from New Life Church will be hosting its First annual Mother’s Day Jewelry Shop at a Conway elementary school. This is where they will take hundreds of beautiful pieces of donated jewelry into a school where children are not likely able to purchase Mother’s Day gifts. They set up a lovely shop where each student selects a piece of jewelry to take home. A visit to the "Mother’s Day Jewelry Shop" is not complete without stopping by the wrapping table where each gift is beautifully wrapped before the students go back to class.

For the children to shop for their mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and special women, they are asking the public for help with donations. They need lots of beautifully, gently-worn, or new jewelry — necklaces, bracelets, pins, adjustable rings and scarfs. Please place two to three items in a Ziploc bag. They are also collecting colored tissue paper and curling ribbon. The deadline for donations will be the end of April. Please contact Tracy Martin at 501-908-2196 or Susan Lockard at 501-269-0037 for pick up of donated items.
