November is Orphan Awareness Month and on Friday, a local group will host an event that will benefit orphaned children in Ethiopia.
Ordinary Hero Founder Kelly Putty appeared on WHOP Tuesday morning to talk about the organization, saying it’s a child advocacy initiative that partners with impoverished communities and helps change the life of a child in need. She says it has sponsored over 700 children in Ethiopia and they work to provide those children what they need.
On Friday, the group will hold a Christmas Concert at New Work Fellowship at 7 p.m. Putty says they’ve had tremendous support from local choirs and talents to make the concert something special.
Before the concert, there will be a silent auction and social time starting at 5:30 p.m. The concert is free to attend but donations to the cause will be accepted. Putty herself has adopted several of her children from Ethiopia and says that Ordinary Hero is making a big change in the lives of many.
