CRESTVIEW — Kyra Crowson, Exodos Ministries' admissions director, needs donations for a benefit dinner next month.

Whether it is a basketful of goods or a coupon ─like for a free car wash or haircut ─Crowson said she'd appreciate having it for silent and verbal auctions during the sixth annual Exodos Dinner and Auction.

The March 17 event at Woodlawn Baptist Church is  free to those who "have a heart" for the Christian substance abuse rehabilitation ministry, she said. Food, cooked by those involved in the ministry, will be served.

Donations and support are important because
"we are the only place in our area that does anything like this," Crowson said.

And Exodos apparently is in demand. The ministry is relocating its residential facility from north Crestview to Baker. Crowson said the move would allow them to more than double the number of men they can help, from seven to 15.

March 16 is the deadline to donate items, Crowson said. All contributions are tax deductible.

All proceeds benefit the ministry, particularly with utility costs and assisting families of men in the program.
