We’re counting down to Giving Tuesday, a day that people all over country use to remember how thankful they are and to create thankfulness in others by giving. As we count down, we want to tell you some stories of our own thankfulness — neighbors and friends who’ve made this organization possible.
Meet Rickey. His neighborhood is in need of renewal. The neighborhood is mostly poor families living in older homes in need of repair and beautification. Rickey himself is a single grandfather who cares for his grandkids part-time. Let me tell you something — we’re thankful for Rickey.
We’re thankful for his huge heart and joyful smile. We’re thankful that he cares for his grandkids and his neighbors. But we’re also thankful he asked for help. Neighbors asking for help is the very first step in the process of community renewal. Without them, we wouldn’t have that spark that ignited the movement of Serve More for the south metro and that has now grown to all of central Oklahoma.
Here’s the deal. When Rickey asked for help, Serve More Volunteers were able to respond because together, we’ve all worked hard to set up our nonprofit to love our neighbors. We’ve secured tools and supplies to do the work. We’ve purchased materials for repairs. We’ve accepted donations to coordinate teams of volunteers. In short, we couldn’t have done it — nor continue to do it for the rest of Rickey’s neighborhood — without your donation.
Prepare for Giving Tuesday. Donors and Volunteers have already created thankfulness in Rickey’s life. Will you consider making a donation to renew the rest of Rickey’s neighborhood and create even more thankfulness?
We simply can't do it without you.
