For more information and to register, please call our CRBA office.
BurkeChangers is going to be awesome again this year and we need your help. Our greatest need is for skilled men and women to serve as Crew Chiefs.

For more information, please go to www.burkechangers.org or call our office at 828-437-0137.
If your church would be willing to adopt a section of Burke County to distribute these packets door to door (not door-knocking, just putting the bag on the door handle), please call our CRBA office.

Please stop by or call our office for more information and/or to pick up the supplies.
On May 2nd, we hope to deliver 300-500 cakes to our Baptist Children’s Homes in NC, and we need your help. Please consider baking a cake (or Cakes) for the wonderful children being taken care of at our Baptist Children’s Homes. Once you bake the cake(s), place them in one of the cake boxes we provide at our office and deliver it to our CRBA office between 7 and 10 a.m. on May 2nd. We will take all the gathered cakes to Clyde and other designated locations where they will be used for dessert after meals. And, on a child’s birthday, the child will choose which cake they want for their birthday celebration. This is a great opportunity for our churches and individuals to impact these wonderful children and the staff at our Children’s Homes. For more information and to pick up free cake boxes, please stop by our CRBA office. Lastly, we have prepared a video explaining how to pack/wrap each cake to protect it from freezer burn. Click here to watch the video. A longer version is available on our CRBA website.
