Ice Storm Damages Mills Home

Baptist Children's Homes' Mills Home in Thomasville was hit hard last week be a tremendous ice storm. Uprooted trees, and fallen limbs and power lines caused severe damage across the campus.

Thankfully, all our cottages were spared and our children remained safe, but the impact of the storm was substantial. Click here to view pictures of the damage on campus.

We have lost thousands of dollars in food alone due to power outages.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Returning the campus to normal will be an extensive and costly endeavor.

Additional financial resources and manpower are needed to replenish food supplies, clear debris and make the necessary repairs to restore Mills Home. Your financial gift will help to defray the cost estimated into tens of thousands of dollars.
