Lilyfield Teams with OC for Foster, Adoption Awareness
Lilyfield Christian Adoption and Foster Care teamed up with OC to bring awareness about children in Oklahoma who are
in need of families. OC dedicated a week of Chapel services to foster care, adoption, and the fatherless.
“Many people can foster or adopt. But even those who cannot open their homes to a child can ensure that other Christian families are able to,” said Holly (DeBoard 02) Towers, Lilyfield’s executive director. “We also hope that a seed might be planted in the hearts of these students to one day foster or adopt.”
Speakers included: Towers; Tom Ward, CEO of SandRidge Energy and founder of White Fields; John Sowers, author of The Fatherless Generation and president of The Mentoring Project; Ben Nockels, director of the 111 Project; and Josh Kingcade (04), adoptive father and a minister at Memorial Road Church of Christ.
OC students were able to help provide homes for children by donating meal swipes in the cafeteria and donating spare change in baby bottles around campus.
