Once a year at Valentine's Day and the days leading up, GOD Learning Center Principal, Monica Smith-Albright, board members and church ladies hand dip strawberries for "Hearts for Children" campaign.
She says the learning center is a small christian academy with no more than 12 students per class. 70 percent are from low income households.
"We put hearts to it because it is Valentines Day and a nice ring saying your heart is in for the children in our community."
They've sold over 450 boxes in years past.
You can get white chocolate, milk chocolate, berries dipped in pecans, berries dipped in mini chocolate chips and strawberries dipped in coconut.
And if the treats aren't perfect enough, she says, "The presentation is what sells the strawberries. Our customers from last two years love the boxes."
The boxes are brown and pink striped with a window and wrapped in a pink bow!
One of the ladies said, "This is what we call tender loving care."
