Stories From Around A Better World

Thank you to everybody who joined us on Facebook Live to watch our kids receive their Christmas gifts! Along with New Leaf Foundation and some key individual donors, we were able to provide more than 350 gifts to underserved families in the community!

Thank you to our donors and sponsors for helping us feed over 60 families FULL Thanksgiving meals! Our community members were able to come by our drive-thru November 24th to pick up a frozen turkey and all the sides that they would need for Thanksgiving dinner!

Below is a 24-minute video full of uplifting stories, testimonials from community members and funny stories from around A Better World. Take a few minutes out of your day to check out what we’re all about!

We get to share an exciting and uplifting story with you! The Green family, who attended A Better World last year, were in a pretty tough living situation and found themselves looking for a more permanent home. Our Administration and Fundraising Director, Beyonka Fulton, took it upon herself to get them there. Enlisting her community partners, our board member Carl Fochler, and the resources that A Better World has to offer, Beyonka worked tirelessly to find them a home and Carl took them shopping to outfit the house and get the family a brand new closet of clean clothes and furnishings for their home. A very special thank you goes out today to Beyonka and Carl for their relentless support of our families!
