Give-A-Kid-A-Chance 2014 – Thank You!!

Before to much time slips away, I want to extend a sincere thank you for supporting GAKAC 2014. It was without a doubt the largest and best supported event we’ve ever had. The need in our community is great but so are members of the community like you, that care enough to take action and do something about it. Whether you prayed, donated, provided goods or services, or volunteered, every single act of support adds up to something wonderful. Seeing people from every segment of the community come together for one purpose – to share and show God’s love to our neighbors is a humbling experience. Is it a lot of work – you bet it is. Are we tired at the end of the day – you bet we are. But is there any better feeling than knowing you made a difference in someone’s life – no there isn’t.

Because of you, at least 1,250 children started the first day of school with a better prepared than they would have otherwise.

We served at least 500 families and 1,250 children (that’s how many backpacks were given)
Almost every book was given by the Book Nook.
The ladies that cut hair – cut until their hands ache.
Over 150 family portraits were taken.
Nearly 4,000 breakfast burritos were served.
Countless smiles were shared.

A special thanks to Ennis ISD for hosting the event in the High School. It is a pleasure watching the youth volunteers interacting with and helping the recipient families.

Attached are a few photos I thought you would like.

Best Regards,

Marty

PS: Watch-Me-Run is now fully funded and we will distribute a new pair of shoes to the 100+ students enrolled in the Lion Cubs (Weekend Food Backpack Program)
