Join God’s Angelic Warriors for tea
It may not seem to many who have attended God’s Angelic Warriors annual fundraiser tea that it has been nine years since the first one.
March 5 will be the date to mark your calendars for this annual event.
From 3 to 5 p.m. at St. Peter Missionary Baptist Church, 207 Parker St., survivors, friends and families will gather for another tea.
The funds raised will support the survivors and their team for Relay for Life. God’s Angelic Warriors have a team that works tirelessly for the American Cancer Society and has participated in the relay for several years.
The faith-based support group was founded by survivor Demetria Reed and survivor Evelyn H. Smith. We appreciate the vision they had for a need to develop the support group that is here to assist persons who have been diagnosed, treated and/or in remission. It has truly been a valuable instrument in this community and other areas across the states.
It is for this reason that you, the Natchez community will be invited to attend our Ninth Annul Tea. All donations raised go directly to the American Cancer Society and are tax deductible so make your checks out to that charity.
Please remember that cancer has no respect for who it attacks. It is for reasons such as this that we are involved in helping to raise funds to assist in the fight for a cure. Helping anyone who has to go through what we have been through, surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation is what we are about.
God’s Angelic Warriors are open to anyone who wishes to be a part of our support group. Many times a healthy person is what is needed in order to offer a positive attitude and be uplifting to the person who has been diagnosed.
They might need a ride to the clinic, the mall or just a ride out of the house. You might be the one who can make a phone call, send a covered dish or mail a card. Whatever you can do, please get involved with God’s Angelic Warriors to help make the cancer person’s life more comfortable.
Join us at the tea for information on what we are about. Learn how you can assist and our special guest will enlighten you of the local availability of services.
Please join us, your friends, family and co-workers for this pleasurable event and later in May in Vidalia for Relay for Life.
If for any reason you cannot attend the tea, your donations can be given to any member of the support group. Thanks for your support through the years and we hope to see you at both events.
