Briarwood Students serve Leeds Outreach

Meet Max Watson. Max is a 10 year old from Briarwood Christian School who loved his great grandmothers, Ida Watson  & Lavada People’s very much. 

Max began a mission called Bunny Hopes for his birthday party in their honor. Instead of personal gifts he asked his friends to make a donation to his mission so he could use the proceeds to bless to other nursing home residents. He raised enough money to buy Easter baskets filled with goodies for 100 residents! His mother delivered the gifts to Ahava Healthcare of Alabaster to distribute on his behalf due to the current Covid-19 No Visitor rule at the facility.

Ahava Healthcare said "We regret that Max wasn’t able to personally assist with the distribution this year but we want him to know how much we and the residents appreciate him for this selfless act of kindness! He made Easter so special for our residents! He also wants to become a volunteer at Ahava and we certainly look forward to that! Next year he can be our Grand Marshal for the Easter Parade! He is the son of David & Terri Watson. They have certainly raised a fine young man with a heart of gold! May God bless this family for blessing ours! "

 

Briarwood Students Cannon Holmes, Jenna Nelson, Jordan Holland, and Rae Ni Riddlesperger donated their skills to the box bottom art project for the Leads Community Outreach.  Leeds Outreach collects reinforcement cardboard for their food delivery boxes and is always looking for artists to donate encouraging messages on box bottoms.
