Watch the Dollar Club stories below:
Our January 2021 edition of the Dollar Club features Chelsie and Ethel. Chelsie is a social worker with The Children's Home Society and is involved with a project called Healthy Grandfamilies, that helps families like Ethel and her two granddaughters — one who has autism and one ADHD.
Lets learn more about Ethel's story and see now the Dollar Club can bless her.
The December 2020 edition of the Dollar Club is going to look a little bit different. Instead of just having one recipient of the Dollar Club, we are going to be able to bless a number of individuals across Charleston and Teays Valley. Thanks to everyone who helped make the Dollar Club a success in 2020!
