Idea Camp Orphan Care is coming to NW Arkansas on Feb 25th & 26th!

The Idea Camp Orphan Care is coming to NW Arkansas on Feb 25th & 26th and Cobblestone Project is proud to help bring this event to our community. The world is full of people with great ideas.

In early October we were alerted of a situation here in NW Arkansas that captured our hearts.  A family of 5 children that were without their parents was in need of some big help.  In order to help, their grandmother offered to serve as their caretaker; however, the living situation had forced her to spend the nights on their porch in order to create room inside.  If you missed the original story, you can read it here “Family of 5 without Parents is in Need” Since then It has been truly remarkable to see how our NW Arkansas Community has rallied around to help this family....
