Something very special happened in Region 8 this past weekend. It's called Overflow Jonesboro. This is an outreach project conducted by members of Southwest Church of Christ. While this project has been going on for years, this year they were able to add something new. The members still helped people with home repairs, yard work and prayer, but this year they were able to add some medical and dental services. Both NEA Baptist and St. Bernards offered their services to the community for free. People were able to get lab work done, check their height, weight, blood pressure and stroke screenings, dental services for all ages and free breast exams. Church members raised 2 thousand dollars to help with Overflow Jonesboro and donations from JT White Lumber Company provided the materials and tools for the home repairs. What an incredible example for all of us. Whether you're volunteering in a group like Overflow Jonesboro or just paying a kind gesture forward - it certainly makes this A Better Region 8.
