Illinois State House District 109 issued the following announcement on Nov. 26
This year we are blessed to be able to provide the Carmi Baptist Children’s Home (BCH) with Thanksgiving turkeys for each of their four residential cottages! The birds came from Little Giant Grocery Outlet in Carmi.
Baptist Children’s Home in Carmi, IL offers residential care and treatment to teens with behavioral issues (multiple suspensions, truancy, fighting, failing grades, family struggles, homelessness, runaways). Often times, BCH can help redirect the life of a troubled teen before the need for legal or DCFS involvement becomes necessary. Learn more about BCH here.
