Many people would stop to pet the dogs, chat with us about our work, and make a gift. Little did we know that one of the visitors was Fred Moseley, a principal at SCM Architects. Fred and ASDA president Donna Waugh had spoken at length, and a week later, he contacted us to say he wanted to make a donation to our organization.
Naturally we were surprised and thrilled by the unexpected generosity. When Mr. Moseley said he wanted to make the gift in the name of one of his clients, First Security Bank, we were moved by his desire to keep with the true spirit of Christmas. We can’t thank him and SCM Architects enough for their support and recognition. (Also for their patience as we encountered some technical difficulties, prepared brochures for their friends, and even in posting this blog!)
And as appreciative as we are for the financial assistance that small 501(c)(3)s like ours need, we are even more grateful that just by putting a little spotlight on us, they have helped us stand a little taller and prouder, and made us strive that much harder to be ready when our community needs us.
