Day care donates to Miracle Field

Participants at the Heaven Sent Day Care trunk-or-treating event included Jouri and Jaber Al-Hussaini.

Quentavian Carter and Kelsey Teague were crowned King and Queen of the Fall Festival at Heaven Sent Day Care Center.

Through the efforts of the king and queen contest and the other 49 children at Heaven Sent, $1,000 was donated to the Troy Miracle Field in honor of Clifton Brady.

“All of the money the children raised in the king and queen contest was donated to this very worthwhile project and in honor of a very special young man,” said Claudette Rogers, Heaven Sent director. “Clifton was injured in a four-wheeler accident seven years ago. He has a niece at Heaven Sent and he and my son are good friends. Clifton is a member of our Heaven Sent family and we wanted him to know how much he is loved by all of us.”

The Fall Festival at Heaven Sent features “Trunk or Treating,” which is a family event.

“The first year we were open, we started looking for a family event where brothers and sister and moms and dads could attend,” Rogers said. “Someone suggested ‘Trunk or Treat’ and that sounded like a great idea. When a child is enrolled at Heaven Sent, that child becomes a part of our Christian family and their family is, too. So, ‘Trunk or Treat’ is something that the parents can do themselves. Of course, all of the staff participates but the parents bring their cars and open the trunks filled with treats so the children can have a fun time celebrating fall.”
