Here I am last year on Labor Day heading to giveaway all these school supplies sponsored by Altschul’s and Auto Line of Norfolk. My family and friends help me pack all night. We packed over 350 bags for the babies in our community. I was so happy that I did not sleep at all the night before. For the past 5 years Reading & Succeeding with Theressa has been giving away school supplies. Well this year I did not have a sponsor and I had given up. I thought to myself, everyone is struggling and no one has money to help. So I told Kristin and Collin, I was not going to do the supply drive this year. I thought they would be happy because they don’t have to pack bags all night, but they were really hurt. They told me that I should ask on the air for help. I said no, but my heart and spirit would not let me rest.
So I took their advice and to God be the glory. The donations are coming from listeners. Once again I feel so humble that you all trust me with your monies knowing that I will take care of the babies in our community. My goal this year is to giveaway more than 500 bags of school supplies. I need about five thousand dollars to make it happen. If you would like to donate please call my office 757-497-2000 ext 232 or send your donation c/o Theressa Brown 236 Clearfield Avenue Suite 206, Virginia Beach, Va. 23462.
Thank you in advance. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for caring about our babies making sure they have the right tools to start school.
