For 23 years, United Methodist women have scrubbed, wrapped and baked thousands of potatoes benefiting a single cause - children.

On Tuesday, those women will gather again at the First United Methodist Church to take part in an annual event that is as familiar to the community as the church itself - the annual baked potato luncheon.

From 11 a.m.-1 p.m. in the church's Fellowship Hall the women will sell plates including a "loaded" baked potato, vegetable, bread and homemade dessert for $6.

"Funds raised will be used to purchase school supply kits for children in Stephenville and other missions around the world focusing on women and children," said Cynthia Rives, co-chair of the event. "Last year we provided kits for more than 150 kids in SISD. The goal this year is to put together school supply kits for over 200 deserving children."
