The Firehouse Shelter and Executive Director, Anne Darden Wright, experienced a Christmas miracle Friday, December 20th when Dr Robert Record showed up unexpectedly at her office to present a $50,000 check! The donation of $50,000 is the largest individual gift to The Firehouse Shelter ministries since 2009.
The Church of The Highlands had recently challenged their congregation to raise 1 million dollars so they could give every penny of that money back to the agencies and programs who deserve it the most in our community. Anne shared these thoughts, "We have been working on building ties with The Church of The Highlands, and we feel VERY blessed to be the recipient of these (much needed) surprise funds. This means we get to march into the New Year on solid financial footing. I think it truly shows how important The Firehouse is to the under-served. I can't tell how grateful we are ~ we are speechless!"
