Angelina Charity Dolls received a donation from Broads with Rods.

A truckload of dolls for little girls, trucks for little boys, crayons and coloring books, for a total of $1,000.00, was donated to 8 year old Angelina Mabry for her mission. She donates these items to children in area hospitals to help ease their illnesses and put smiles on their little faces. Angelina overcame many obstacles from collapsed lungs, brain aneurysm and open heart surgery among other medical setbacks. Broads with Rods heard of Angelina Charity Dolls through Channel 11 News as she was being interviewed for her giving heart. We contacted her grandmother, Linda LaBeth, so we could help Angelina continue her mission. Our prayer for Angelina is for God to light her path and direct her steps so that she may continue to be a blessing to as many children as possible through her charity. Thank you Angelina for being such an angel!

Wounded Heroes of Texas received a donation of $1,000.00 for their service to our ladies in the military. We were so honored to have our military ladies as our special guests for a second year. We send a special “thank you” to our American Soldiers for defending our United States of America for our freedom! May God continue to bless you with His peace!
