      Alma Randolph Patton, a gospel singer with a contemporary flare, is becoming known to thousands of people as she shares a musical ministry that has been anointed by God. Alma was born into a Christian family; her father was a minister, and her mother worked by his side. When Alma was three, however, the family was shattered by her father’s death and forced to live in poverty for the next thirteen years. She never forgot the family’s struggle through poverty and has vowed to help children that are now on the road she once traveled. Therefore, The Alma Randolph Charitable Foundation was established in 1993. Thanks to all our sponsors and contributors for your continued support. God bless each of you for sharing the vision of clothing the disadvantaged children of Owensboro- Daviess County.
