DURANT, Okla. (BNc) — Oklahoma TV station KXII has named Joy Curtis one of its “12 who Care,” for her work with the intellectually challenged.

A little over a year ago, Joy joined several others to create Bridging the Gap Together, Inc., a non-profit that creates jobs for those with special needs at the Good Deal Thrift Store.

Joy’s husband John became the pulpit minister at the 7th and Beech congregation in Durant in Aug., 2001.

Their daughter Julie is also featured in the report.

John called them his celebrity ladies and said they were terrific in the report.

They served for several years as missionaries in São Paulo, Brazil.
