Loving = Giving

Throughout Scripture we can see a connection between love and giving.  How are you encouraging your givers to love, to connect their heart to their giving? As you share the opportunity to give, be sure you are sharing how your ministry/organization is loving your community.

Shelby Cares

Over 15 years ago, a Shelby employee connected our team with Orange Mound Outreach Ministries. As one of the only structured, faith-based organizations in the Orange Mound neighborhood of Memphis, the Directors Rev. Reginald J Tucker and his wife Mrs. Mary Tucker, provide much needed sanctuary and training for the youth of their neighborhood. Their purpose is to take back their children from drugs, gangs, alcohol, and violence in their area.

Every year Shelby employees raise funds and volunteer with this organization. At Christmas we were able to provide hoodies for every participant as well a donation toward the operating expenses of the organization.
