For over 55 years the American Legion Auxiliary has been supporting the ministry of Patrick Henry Family Service. Recently, gift bearing members of Unit 16 returned to our campus to view the results of their most recent donation which was used to purchase a Smart Board for Patrick Henry Academy, our in-house school and educational support center.
It’s through such loyal donors that we are able to do what we do best and that’s take care of children. Watching the interaction between our youth and the Auxiliary members was heart-warming. As an older gentlemen put his hand on one of the student’s shoulders, I witnessed a tremendous smile on both their faces. It seemed the gentlemen smiled in hopes of making a difference in a younger person’s life, and it appeared as if the student smiled knowing that the donation had already made a tremendous difference in his ability to learn.
Moral of the story? Giving graciously and receiving appreciatively, creates countless opportunities for life changing possibilities.
Take Away: Giving graciously and receiving appreciatively, creates countless opportunities for life changing possibilities.
