CONWAY, Ark.

Act of compassion and fashion for The Women's Shelter of Central Arkansas

Act of compassion and fashion for The Women's Shelter of Central Arkansas

The Women's Shelter of Central Arkansas based in Conway has been given a generous act of compassion and fashion through the work of No-Fuss Scarves (http://nofussscarves.com/) and local not for profit organization, The Compassion Fashion Project.  The collaboration between both entities has resulted in a wardrobe donation for residents living in the Conway women's shelter.  The patented scarf designs provide several options for wear within one item, resulting in variations for the women's closets.  Scarves can be draped accordingly to create a shirt, wrap, dress, skirt or multiple other garments.  In fact, the company touts their designs as "a wardrobe within a scarf."

The Women's Shelter of Central Arkansas has provided emergency assistance to domestic violence victims since November of 1995.   It also operates a rape-crisis hotline and healthy dating programs in the schools.

Church cancels meeting; worships through service

Church cancels meeting; worships through service

SHERWOOD, Ark. – Cornerstone Bible Fellowship will not be meeting, at least in its traditional fashion, on Sunday August 7.  On that day church members will be out in the communities in Central Arkansas – Sherwood, North Little Rock, Jacksonville, Vilonia, and Little Rock – Worshipping by Serving.  It's declared as a day in which Cornerstone members say to one another, Don’t Go to Church – BE THE CHURCH. 

Cornerstone people will be at 18 service sites serving people from the homeless, to Vilonia storm victims, to hospitals patients and families, to individual widows who need home repairs.  Several  hundred Cornerstone people will be serving with the emphasis on showing God’s love to all people and working out the need the church has to be outside of its walls to show this love.  There are 18 service sites such as Ronald McDonald House, local police and fire stations and a local nursing home.

Group seeks to break record for a 'week of action'

Group seeks to break record for a 'week of action'

Week of Action will kickoff on Monday, June 20, at 6:00 pm.  I have attached the invitation which details the schedule of events for that evening on the back.

I spoke to Steve specifically about two projects taking place next week that Todays THV may be interested in covering.  The first project is Stuff the Bus, which will take place all week long and will be located at Acxiom on Wednesday, June 22 beginning at 9:00 am.  Stuff the Bus is United Way’s annual school supply drive to benefit children in need in Faulkner and Perry Counties.  This year, we will be stuffing an actual school bus with supplies and we are expecting large community outpouring.  I do anticipate that Wednesday will be the busiest day for it because Acxiom employees are working very hard to promote that project.  The bus will remain on Acxiom property until 5:00 pm that evening and I have included the full schedule for the Stuff the Bus locations during next week.
