Our Christmas Boot Drive director Charlie Bates also serves as a firefighter with the Conway Fire Department.
2017 will be Bates' 2nd year as director, and he hopes to raise over $50,000 to help families in need this year!
“It’s not about us,” Bates says. “Sometimes we get caught up in doing good deeds, … but really the thing about doing good work — it’s really an outward worship of Christ. It’s not about us. It’s about how are we glorifying God and how are we taking care of our brothers and sisters.”
