Ministry's gift show raises money to help incarcerated women

Amarillo, TX - Incarcerated women in the Amarillo area may be receiving more help from one area organization following a major fundraiser over the weekend.

The "Christmas in October" event, held in November this year, and kicked off Saturday in the South Exhibit Hall of the Amarillo Civic Center.

More than 100 vendors were on hand at the massive gift and craft show all to help raise money for Sharing Hope Ministry, a group that provides faith-based services to women incarcerated, newly released or still in rehab. "So you buy a cake, for instance, say it's a twenty dollar cake, you've purchased a Bible for a woman," Amy Kirk with Sharing Hope Ministry said. "So what you're buying at that bake sale or every three people that come in we get a donation for a Bible. So it is directly affecting the benefit of the ministry."

The event continues Sunday, November 3, from noon to 5:00 and admission is four dollars. For more information on the mission of the ministry, visit the group's website at sharinghopeministry.org.
