Vacation Bible School students assist Love INC with food donation

Surrounded by painted murals, Courtney Orvalla and her brother, Robert, tied colored ribbons around brown paper bags Monday afternoon in the basement of The Journey at First Baptist. The bags, containing dry soup, were designed by Vacation Bible School students, and there was a goal in mind for them. They were being donated to Love In the Name of Christ of the Yampa Valley, a local nonprofit organization. “A lot of (VBS students) were really understanding about it, they were really excited they got to help people out,” said Courtney, of the 70 to 80 children who participated in The Journey's VBS, which took place last week and was themed, "Sonrise National Park."
