Recently Linda North introduced the congregation in Pedee to Joe Toma, who is collecting items for babies: bottles, towels, soap, diapers, and other baby things. In the past three years, Joe has worked on three projects for the city of Dallas, including collecting items for the homeless in Dallas and the surrounding area, collecting bears for children in bad situations in Polk County, and now his current project. Joe has physical problems himself, but now can speak through a special device on his iPad, which has opened up his world. Please contact Linda at if you’d like to help Joe out.
