Heart2Heart will be participating in Give Ozarks on May 5, 2015. Give Ozarks is a one-day, online fundraising event for nonprofit partners of the Community Foundation of the Ozarks. The purpose of the event is to raise as much money in donations during a 24 hour period. The Foundation for Fair Grove Public Schools is working with Heart 2 Heart Outreach Ministries to raise funds to provide food during non-school time (weekends and summer) for our less fortunate children in the Fair Grove School District. The Foundation for Fair Grove Public Schools’ goal is to provide leadership and funding for projects that are beyond the scope of the FG School budget.

Breakfast with Santa

Posted on: November 13th, 2014 by Nathanael Padgett

Dear Parents,

Wouldn’t it be nice to do breakfast with Santa close to home instead of driving all the way to Springfield, standing in huge lines with your children and paying a fortune for one little picture? Well, we have a deal for you! Heart 2 Heart and Hilltop Pizza & Grill want to help make this a fun and memorable time for you and your children.

On Saturday, December 6th we will have all-you can-eat pancakes, sausage and biscuits & gravy, along with a visit from Santa and a FREE opportunity for your child to sit on Santa’s lap to tell him what they want for Christmas – and you can take pictures. It’s your opportunity to support a local business a local organization AND mark a visit with Santa off your Christmas list – all for only $6 per person – WHAT A DEAL!
So plan on joining us Saturday, December 6th from 8:00-10:00 a.m. at Hilltop Pizza & Grill. All proceeds from the breakfast benefit Heart2Heart Outreach Ministries.

Volunteers Needed for Food Power Exhibit

Posted on: August 27th, 2014 by Nathanael Padgett

The Fair Grove Elementary School has requested a few helpers for an interactive exhibit from the University of Missouri Extension office called Food Power that will be at Fair Grove Elementary on Friday, September 12th. It is always worthwhile to teach children about awareness of their health and seeing our communities members reinforcing these positive decisions can only make the message more powerful.

I know that PTO is helping, but they are needing a few more folks

To volunteer, please contact the Elementary office at (417) 759-2555
