Lakeview Presbyterian Church Volunteers Sowing Seeds of Hope for PCHAS Client

Spring is upon us, and members of the Lakeview Presbyterian Church of New Orleans are spreading seeds of hope for PCHAS clients Britney, a single mom, and Rocket, her two-year-old son. Last month, volunteers from Lakeview drove in a caravan to Britney’s home, where they planted flowers and a vegetable garden in her backyard.

Britney, who has been trying to get back on her feet after suffering from several bouts of cancer, was overwhelmed by the generosity shown by the congregation.

Volunteers included a number of church members, including ladies of the Lakeview Presbyterian Women group and Pastor Barett Milner, with his three sons in tow. Child and Family Specialist, Katie Ryan, dressed in overalls, rain boots and Disney Princess gardening gloves, came prepared to work alongside the other volunteers.

Lakeview Presbyterian houses one of the Child and Family Program offices in New Orleans; Faith Presbyterian Church in Harvey, LA, houses the other.
