In this Love in Action season we’re SO glad we got to celebrate with our Getting Ahead graduate Holland and her children this month during a groundbreaking ceremony for their new home with our friends at Greater Matthews Habitat for Humanity.
Holland was one of our very first GA graduates in 2018 and her progress since has been amazing.
YOU can help other local families like Holland’s start their journeys out of poverty by donating during this fundraiser that culminates in our Oct. 6 Love in Action Gala at Threshold Church in Weddington. We still have a limited number of Gala tickets available and have extended the RSVP deadline to Friday, Sept. 29.
