BROWNWOOD – April 8, 2019 – Howard Payne University’s Criminal Justice Club and Amigos Unidos Club will host an event this Saturday, April 13, to collect new and gently used items for the Heart of Texas Children’s Advocacy Center in Early. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot of Abundant Life Church on West Commerce in Brownwood.
