Others have donated valuable time and talents. Janis Henderson-Hunsucker
designs and updates our website, consults with us on artistic matters
and directs the board. Sherry Stewart, CPA, compiled the paperwork necessary
to apply for non-profit status through the IRS and audits our accounts.
Charlotte Offerdahl, attorney, advises us on legal issues, and Rebecca

Donations have also made an impact, for those who benefit from our supply
of teaching materials and to our hearts - still touched by Karen Payne's
decision to ask that donations be made, in lieu of flowers, to the BCLP
in honor of her son, Anthony Payne, who passed away last summer. Her
friends and relatives sent us about $700.
Others have donated generously as well: Joy and Wayne Lewis (who give
$25 per month), and the Shoals Ruritans, which gave $200 after Joy Lewis
presented our cause to them.
Our 24 tutors donate many hours of their time to training and teaching.
They are diligent and dedicated and make a world of difference to individuals,
families and our communities - without any fanfare at all.
Thank you all for your kind faith and generosity.
