Dances with Smiles

30 Mar

N-Spire Praise Dance Group initially established out of Hanley Elementary School in Memphis about 4 years ago. The group consists of inner-city girls from the Memphis, Tennessee area, who dance for various events in and around Memphis.

The doors opened to the community when most of the group of girls graduated from the school, thus allowing non Hanley Elementary students to participate. The girls have blessed many people with their gift of dance and the dance group has no intentions of quitting anytime soon.

“The profits will benefit our organization in 2 specific ways,” says Cynthia Loyd-Johnson, “We are in desperate need of new dance uniforms.  We are also preparing to take the girls to Disney World in Orlando this July for 4 days. We want to reward them for being dedicated to the group and we simply don’t have the money to purchase new uniforms or take them to Orlando without extra help.”

Popcorn Palace wishes N-Spire Praise Dance Group much dancing success! Visit You Tube to view  N-Spire Praise Dance Group’s performance.

The Gift of Giving

8 Mar

On Wednesday nights in Perryton, TX, the Victory Kiddos ministry conducts church service at Victory Family Church.  The church wanted to teach the 5 to 12 year olds about the joy of giving to others and through a parishioner’s recommendation; they stumbled upon Operation Christmas Child (OCC) through Samaritan’s Purse.

For over 40 years, Samaritan’s Purse has aided the world’s poor, sick and suffering by providing education, food, clothing and shelter programs in over 200 different countries.  The mission of OCC is reached by having people fill empty shoe boxes with all kinds of toys, toiletries, candy, stickers, books, and clothes.  The boxes are wrapped in Christmas paper and labeled to a boy or girl and age.

The ministry collected empty shoe boxes from all over our town for a couple months and wrapped them.  The proceeds of the Popcorn Palace fundraiser allowed the ministry to buy items to fill the boxes. To make the event more fun, the church organized a box filling party.  Each box must be carefully packed as all the boxes are inspected at the processing centers.

“Our goal was to send 50 shoe boxes to OCC.  We did that!  And we had plenty left over to send a check along with our boxes to help with the shipping costs,” said Gayle Bishop, “ Since this was a success, we have decided to annually raise money for OCC.”
