On Wednesday, St. Paul's Episcopal Church's Junior Daughters of the King members delivered on multiple service projects they took on this Christmas season. The young women purchased and took hygiene supplies to Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle Behavioral Health for the residents and also delivered snacks to the Baptist Cancer Infusion Center, for patients receiving treatments. In addition, members stocked a local free-standing Little Free Pantry with food items for anyone in need and delivered cases of water and Gatorade to Columbus Fire Station No. 1, to have on hand after fighting fires. They also made a visit to the Columbus-Lowndes Humane Society, with dog and cat food, leashes, collars and other supplies.
"This is the most service projects we have ever done at one time; I am one really proud Junior DOK directress," said Rose Crowe, who assists the group.
Junior Daughters of the King is a Rule of Life, a self-imposed spiritual discipline practiced daily. Members pledge themselves to a lifelong program of prayer, service and evangelism.
"This is the hardest these girls have ever worked -- and with their own money," Crowe said. "What a blessed, fun, productive and fulfilling day we had."
