February 5th was Souper Bowl Sunday. The congregation collected 199 cans of soup. They also collected $378.00 in money wrapped around the cans. This was donated to the Valley Food Pantry and The Salvation Army. This surpassed last years total of 151 cans and $240.00!

Answering the call of The Bridge to supply items to seniors in nursing homes, Valley United ran a collection in January and February, and the items poured in - toothbrushes, personal care wipes, puzzles, pens, toothbrushes, clothing items, and so much more. When Jim and Marie Parks delivered the supplies to Christian Life Church, The Bridge was astonished at how much we collected! Thank you not only to Jim and Marie for delivering the items collected, but thank you very much to all those who donated! The seniors in our local nursing homes will certainly appreciate a most-needed personal care item that's readily available to them.

On March 6, across the United States families and loved ones remember and celebrate the lives lost to overdose. This day has become known as Black Balloon Day.

Black Balloon Day has become a national and international event, bringing awareness to overdose deaths. As with many things with the opioid epidemic, Black Balloon Day began with a family’s loss. Diane and Lauren Hurley began Black Balloon Day in remembrance of Greg Tremblay. Tremblay, a father of four, is the son-in-law of Diane and brother-in-law of Lauren and died of an overdose when he was 38 years old on March 6, 2015.

Drug overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the United States. Opioid addiction is driving this epidemic. Americans are more likely to die of an opioid overdose than they are from a car accident or by a gun. Black Balloon Day helps create awareness around the important issue of providing support to those struggling with substance use disorder and their loved ones. Pastor Sharan delivered balloons to Ted Clark's, Big Foote's Sporting Goods, the Loom and the Valley Bowling Center.
