Last evening, we joined local nonprofits that were being honored at the 2015 Lynchburg Living Giving Back Awards Reception. The room was filled with a buzz as people mingled, laughed, and shared updates of happenings within the organizations they represented.
As we took our seats for the presentation, the Managing Editor, Jennifer Redmond, shared that over 170 organizations were in the initial round with only the top 25 being recognized in the magazine. Looking around the room, I saw many familiar faces of those that we have partnered with as we work together for the common goal of making an impact in someone’s life.
To be a small part of the event was an honor as the Liberty Godparent Maternity Home was voted the #6 Nonprofit in our community for 2015. Thank you to all that took time to vote! We appreciate you.
I must also say a special congratulation to Family LifeServices, our partner ministry, who were voted #3. It is an pleasure to share a building with their team, brainstorm on ways to better impact our community, and see lives changed because of the compassion they display.
Congratulations to all of the top-voted local nonprofits! It was encouraging to sit with many others that are are passionate about impacting lives and improving our community.
