“BAKE & BID” - Help a Family in Need


We can make an impact on our world, but it starts in our own backyard. Our own L Streets resident Stephanie Owens (fourteen year old daughter of Mia and Jim Owens), is in need of your prayers and support. Stephanie has suffered brain trauma from being struck by a vehicle while riding her bike. Her prognosis is undetermined, yet optimistic.

Along with the emotional strain comes the reality of medical expenses. We are asking for you or anyone you know to come together and help the Owens Family. Although a long road lies ahead for Stephanie and her family your support can help ease the journey. If you would like to show your support, you can do so by donating baked goods, merchandise/services for silent auction or make a monetary donation. Tell your family and friends to come by and shop! There will be lots of goodies and wonderful items at our silent auction!
