We would like to thank our monthly partner Waldo Pizza for providing our scholars with great experiences in the restaurant!
BHGH of KC depends on volunteers to provide dinner Monday through Thursday evenings. When you donate a meal or groceries, you are sustaining scholars and offering them an example of what it means to serve others. Family dinner is an important component of daily life at the scholars' home, as they gather each evening at 6:00 p.m. for prayer and a healthy, balanced meal.
