Kate Klingsmith volunteers at Glory Community twice a month to engage our guys in various activities from crafts, to bowling, or simply going out to dinner. Recently, Kate helped the guys cook up some fragrant lotion that they gave their moms for Valentine’s Day. Whatever the season or whatever the activity, Kate loves to pitch in and help. The men of Scott’s Place always love it when Kate comes around. Even though it’s a couple days later, Kate Klingsmith is our Thank You Thursday Valentine!
Bud and Jeanne Frith have been with Glory Community from the beginning. Jeanne served with the Fundraising Committee through the Ladies Luncheons and the Gala until 2014. Bud served on the Board of Directors from 2005 through 2016. Together they both are committed to Scott’s Place for their Tuesday night Bible studies and teach one night a month. They love the men as much as the men love them. We are very grateful for their continued support! This Thank You Thursday goes out to Bud and Jeanne Frith!
It’s Thursday and this week we highlight a donor family who support Glory Community with a monthly gift payment. Vicky and Warren Marshall see Glory Community as just the kind of option that they would like to see for their son, Jonathan, some day. Jonathan, 23, has Down Syndrome and like most all parents who have children with a developmental disability, Vicky and Warren worry about what will happen to Jonathan when they are no longer able to care for him.
“Looking at Glory Community, a neighborhood where there will be 5 homes and 40 other adults who would be Jonathan’s friends, sounds just so great to us. And so we wanted to start supporting the Community now!” said Vicky. When asked why they chose to give on a monthly basis, Vicky said, “It’s just easier to set it up that way, we budget it and its done.”
We at Glory Community are so grateful for the Marshall family and their commitment to support us with regular monthly contributions. Thank You to Vicky, Warren and Jonathan Marshall.
