The number of scholarships awarded varies each year depending on the number of applicants and the money available.

Project Warm Hands is a project that was founded in 2012 during a snowy Christmas Parade. There were children waiting in line to see Santa to receive some candy and a toy. Some of these children were so cold that their hands were red. With this weighing heavy on my heart, I knew I had to do something. God gave me a vision of gloves for these children. From that day forward, I, along with big-hearted people like you, have been collecting gloves to cover those little fingers.

If you would like to help keep a child's little fingers warm during the cold weather this year, please give your donation of gloves or a monetary donation to help purchase gloves. Project Warm Hands wants to thank you for caring and the children and you will be blessed by your generosity.

God Bless You for having a Big Heart!
