Benefit trap shoot set for Jacksonville

The Arkansas Baptist Children's Homes & Family Ministries will host the second annual "Pull for Arkansas Families" Trap Shoot on Friday for children, teens and single mothers in crisis.

A shotgun start will begin at 8, 9 and 10 a.m. at the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation Shooting Sports Complex at 2800 Graham Road in Jacksonville.

Entry fee for a five-member team is $1,000, which includes clays, lunch and a gift.

Proceeds will benefit the Family Care Home for single mothers and their children. The home assists single-parent mothers and their children through residential care, mentoring, financial planning, teaching, counseling and referral to valuable community resources.

The Little Rock Family Ministry Center in southwest Little Rock provides space for growth and expansion of the agency's counseling ministry, including the addition of a state-of-the-art play therapy suite. In addition, the Connected Foster Care ministry in central Arkansas recruits and trains foster families.
