Amarah's Corner: Amarah shares application for ‘kids like me’

Hi! My name is Amarah. Kids are important to me, and they’re important to Jesus, too.

Jesus said in Matthew 25:40 (KJV), “Whatever you’ve done unto the least of these (kids), you’ve done it unto me.”

“Kids like me” are kids and adults of all ages whose parents are, or were, drug addicts, and alcoholics; kids who have suffered, or who are suffering, abuse and neglect on multiple levels; and kids who are victims of bullying.

Please, help me help kids like me have Christmas this year! Do you know a kid like me who needs help for Christmas? If so, please complete this application and take to ACE HARDWARE or mail to Amarah’s Kids Like Me, P.O. Box 354, Alamosa, CO, 81101.

Please donate to our annual Kids Like Me Toy/Food/Warm Clothing Drive! Drop off donations at ACE HARDWARE, 157 Craft Drive, Alamosa, Monday-Saturday, 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Donations accepted now through Friday, 12/22/17. The Christmas Gift give-away for Kids Like Me will be Saturday, 12/23/17, at the Church of Christ 408 Victoria Avenue, Alamosa.

My goal is to help kids like me, and I want to help their parents, too. Until next time, remember, Jesus Loves You, and JESUS IS LORD!
