An unexpected shopping spree delighted families and children from New Hope Missionary Baptist Church  just in time for Christmas.  Fredda and Art Davis paid it forward, giving youngsters a chance to “Go shopping in grand style during the Christmas season.”  Art and Fredda arranged to meet the youngsters and their parents at a local Target Store, where the kids received $100.00 per family. One father was overheard saying, “This is really cool, things are tough, and true, this helps my wallet, but it really helps my heart! It is good that they are sharing theirs. I want to be just like them!” Dr. Robert Fairley, Sr. Pastor of New Hope Missionary Baptist Church said he is “Delighted to have our congregation’s young people participate in this spirited spree”
