What:
Patients of Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH) will enjoy an hour-long egg hunt hosted by the William J. Clinton Foundation. Children who are admitted and visiting clinics at ACH will be able to take advantage of this special opportunity to have fun and simply focus on being a kid. The Foundation will hide more than 200 plastic eggs for patients to scout out in the open-air play area adjacent to the hospital lobby. Complete with rock formations, a water fall and fort, the space offers a wealth of possible hiding locations for these spring treasures. An Easter Bunny will greet the children, and once they fill their baskets, eggs will be traded for prizes.

Who:  Arkansas Children’s Hospital patients and Clinton Foundation officials and volunteers will be on hand for photo and interview opportunities.

When: Wednesday, April 13, from 2 p.m.

Lending hands to people homeless, hungry, hurting

Lending hands to people homeless, hungry, hurting

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – On the corner of Highway 161 and Fairfax sits a small church, and tucked just behind that small church is a small food pantry. The place may be small, but the volunteers there have big hearts – and ambitions.

I stopped by Full Gospel Temple to chat with Pastor Ken Mullen and other volunteers about “In Your Hands Ministry,” a program devoted to providing food for the poor and homeless. For eight years, they have devoted themselves to helping people they say are “homeless, hungry and hurting,” going so far as to bus in the homeless from downtown Little Rock for a hot meal and a prayer service.

Every Tuesday, the crew gives away food to needy families behind the church. They also take prayer requests and often have devotion on the spot for those who request it.
