Two Ways SETX Seniors can Help Orphans

Everyone has a soft spot in their heart for orphans. No one should have to grow up without being part of a family.

From the fictional Annie to the real life Wendy of the Wendy’s hamburger chain, stories of Americans helping orphans are part of our culture.

For the average Southeast Texas senior citizen, it can be difficult or impossible to adopt another child. There are little things we can do to help though.

One is participating in a Southeast Texas fun run that raises money for orphans. Active seniors can participate as runners. Other seniors can be just as valuable by assisting as volunteers.

It is called the “Soul Winners India Orphan Run”.

It will be held Saturday December 1st at Martin Dies Jr. State Park’s Walnut Ridge Unit. This is on the way to Jasper at Dam B for all of you fishers, hunters, lake house owners, or bird watchers.

ALL proceeds go to Soul Winners India and their three orphanages in India and Nepal.
