I am so proud to be launching our website today.  The past 2 1/2 years have been a journey to learn what our new life will be like without Zachery.  What we have found is Zachery's love and compassion for others was so strong and that he left us a gift of helping people in need.  If your reading this we can only hope Zachery's story has inspired you to help us pay it forward.

Before I begin I have to say God Is GOOD! He is so good to all of us Thank You Jesus. After long nights of planning an event for the Tin-Caps that turned out great! And now planning something with Andy's Nockout Chicken and Nelson's Chicken to help us. But after a lot of Prayer The Lord told me this is the place to be. I love helping people it's in my blood. 

Thank you for all your help and support May The Lord be with you All! Gods Blessings,

I was reading Proverbs 19:17 that states: Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deeds. Reread that again. I love it; The Lord will repay us for the good deeds we are doing. Being apart of Backpacks of Hope is just a great. Knowing the Lord will repay me. I have a AWESOME life so far, ponderd what God has Planned. Thank You and please remeber Prov. 19:17 and what The Lord will do if you be GENEROUS to the poor.
