The Order of the Golden Circle Capital Valley Assembly No. 36 has been a proud supporter of the Miracle on Long Street for several years.
This is just one of the many generous donations of clothing, shoes, purses and other personal items that Ms. Vivian Hawkins (Loyal Lady Ruler) brought to the Miracle for us to distribute to those who are encountering that occasional "Bump" in the road.
Ms. Smith has been a part of the Miracle on Long Street family for quite some time. We have been fortunate to witness the births of her daughter and son, have watched her growth and maturation process, and have been an intricate part of her transitions for almost 10 years. No matter what situations life presents her with; her children and herself always have a smile, positive attitude, and willingness to share happiness with the Miracle Family and our guests.
When we presented her daughter with a brand new coat, she was overwhelmed and stated: "You all have been so good to us, that's why I love you all so much! Your volunteers show us that they really care about my family, that's I come here every month. I appreciate what you all do for us, and we do LOVE you so much!!! When people need encouragement, motivation or material things, you are ALWAYS there. I LOVE MIRACLE ON LONG STREET, and I am so glad that you are here for US."
We have known the Ledbetter's for the better part of 10 years.
Lucky Ledbetter, who is the father of this beautiful little angel, has faced many challenges and struggles throughout his 24 year lifespan. Being one who is not accustomed to patience, discipline and restraint, he yet perseveres. Faced with the privileges and responsibilities of fatherhood and a unique and uncertain employment situation due to choices and consequences of his own doing, he refuses to look backwards and continues to take the necessary strides toward being a productive member of society.
A large portion of the Miracle on Long Street's community and civic responsibilities are not to wait on people to ask for assistance, but to go out and assist the people.
WE ARE HERE TO LIFT UP, NOT PUT DOWN, TO GUIDE, NOT TO JUDGE, TO MAKE A WAY, WHEN IT SEEMS ALL HOPE IS LOST.
Thank you Ledbetter family for giving the Miracle on Long Street an opportunity to help your dreams come true.
We are so humbled to be able to provide one of the Ledbetter children with a brand new coat, scarf, hats, gloves, toiletries, and toys.
Here's to making 2020 your family's best year yet.
