UPDATE: December 2018
Over two Saturdays in October, Master’s Touch was able to raise $1,250 for their disaster relief fund. A collective effort by churches in Pender and Onslow Counties, Master’s Touch is an organization that believes in demonstrating their commitment to Jesus Christ by helping their neighbors throughout the region. This October event took place only 5 weeks after Hurricane Florence made landfall on Wrightsville Beach and much of the community is still reeling in the aftermath.
Like so many of Sneads Ferry’s triumphs, the success of this event was a community endeavor. Village Ace Hardware, no stranger to involvement themselves, provided a location to host kids’ October activities. On October 20th and 27th there were fire safety demonstrations, a professional photo booth, and, of course, lots of candy.
May Day Photography and Rachel Carter Images took photos amidst haystacks and pumpkins. Everyone looks like a professional model in the autumn inspired booths, a testament to the difference between a photographer and a person with a camera. Both professional photographers with impressive résumés, Mary Burgy and Rachel Carter charged $15 for the pictures and $5 for digital prints. Their time and all of the proceeds went to Master’s Touch.
Everyone looks happy in the pictures. Holding pumpkins and dressed in plaid, these families look excited for the holiday. With the collaborative effort of the Sneads Ferry community and churches that comprise of Master’s Touch, these same smiles are brought to families who before felt dread about the upcoming holidays. They become excited about a future made possible with the help of neighbors who care.
