Red Cross, CVS/pharmacy, MommyB Knows Best Service Day Recap

September 17, 2013 4 Comments »

Thank you all for your thoughts and participation on the Red Cross, CVS/pharmacy and MommyB Knows Best Service Day! The day was a huge success, so many lives will be touched by the work that went on a few weekends ago and it definitely ignited a strong desire in my heart to continue to serve my community and others in this way.

CVS/pharmacy not only donated a large number of personal care and hygiene products, but with the help of the awesome people at Matter Communications we were able to connect and serve along with some amazing Red Cross of Charlotte volunteers.

Here’s my video recap of the days events and some pictures!

Red Cross CVS MommyB Knows Best Service Day

This day will certainly be one I won’t remember. I was able to vocally share my story of the devastating house fire my family lived through, which I haven’t done much in my life and even though tears filled my eyes and my voice wavered throughout I know that the more I tell my story the more lives will be touched, and the more awareness it will bring.

I feel so blessed to have been able to be a part of this event and am grateful for all the people who believed in me to organize it, but give all the glory to God. He is the one who not only saved me from the fire that day, but has given me new life in Him.

What are you and your family currently doing or plan on doing to serve others in your community or across the globe??

    We try to give back throughout the year by donating food to local food shelters and we also donate toys, dvds and books to local children’s hospitals.

    It’s always such a blessing to give back. And it means so much more when you’ve been the position of those you are helping. We make sure to donate to charities like Goodwill as well as donating food to food banks.
