Who doesn't love a Honey Baked Ham and Honey Baked Turkey for tailgating, Thanksgiving, or Christmas? Nobody, that's who! If you buy gift cards by following the link below, you too can have delicious HBH for all your festive occasions AND support Young Life and Wyldlife! 

Winter camp is coming soon and students are earning money to get there. HBH will give 20% of your purchase back to Young Life. You get all the deliciousness and HBH gives them the money back for their camp funds! It's a win-win! The 20% will go to the general campership fund for our area, unless you want it to go to someone specifically. For specific sponsorships, please let Shelley Carr know

 Now go eat some turkey and ham!

Basic ERT Member Training (8 hours)
Participants learn the basics of disaster response, including how to stabilize and secure homes safely, and how to work effectively with survivors and others on the response team. This standardized class is required for the basic ERT UMCOR identification badge.
