Each month, Walker Pharmacy and Boutique is honored to partner with a local charity or non-profit organization by donating a cash fund based on the number of prescriptions filled in our pharmacy locations. These funds help support these organizations by funding for the needs of the administrators and the needs of those they serve. For the month of June, we are proud to partner with an organization rooted in Brooklet, Georgia — Delight in the Lord Ministries, Inc.
In the past, the organizations that we have partnered with have been local charities that are helping our surrounding communities, and it has been a blessing to see the direct results benefiting our fellow citizens. But DL Ministries is distinctly different from previous endeavors because we have the opportunity to fund a local young lady, Cierra Crowe, as she ministers and provides for young children in Uganda, Africa! By visiting Cierra’s website at www.delightinthelordministries.org or via Facebook through @delightinthelordministries, you will find the remarkable story of DLM’s beginnings as Cierra shares how a short mission trip captured her heart and a seed was planted for her to return on a more permanent basis to pursue education, vocation training, and feeding programs for the children of Uganda. Cierra also shares blog updates that will enable you to personally participate in the heart of the ministry and to witness how your funds are blessing the growth of the ministry’s outreach as her feeding programs have been established and as she works to establish affordable, quality education for all children. Now as the guardian parent of three boys previously living at a shelter, Cierra is learning what it means to parent these children with grace under pressure!
If you are interested in learning more about this ministry, please visit Cierra’s website where you will have the opportunity to donate. As is always the case, it is difficult to feel limited in our resources to financially support those whom we are committed to encouraging in any way we can. By spreading the word about Walker Pharmacy’s monthly philanthropy, you will be encouraging others to participate with you as a team as they bring their own prescriptions for secure donations. Edward Everett Hale once said, “I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.” We as individuals can affect others in profound ways, but our efforts to take a stand and come together as a community can affect a mission or an individual in untold ways for years to come. Please consider partnering with us today and putting the word out in our community as we seek to bless Cierra and the people of Uganda in tangible ways this month! Join us next month to find out what our July philanthropy project will be and how you can participate!
~ A note from the author, Sydney: I love that quote from Edward Hale because it reminds me not only of the power of an individual’s determined devotion, but also of the magnified power devoted individuals pulling together as a community with the same mind and fiercely devoted heart to make the world a better place for someone else. In the chaos of this world and the heartbreak that each breaking news update brings, it is easy to become disheartened that darkness and evil have become such overwhelming forces. But as history shows, genuine revolutions are born in persecution and spread like wildfires in the face of such darkness. Love at its truest form is sacrificial, and sacrificial love is the greatest force on Earth. Let’s come together as a community to penetrate the darkness and offer our love and devotion to others who need our brotherly faithfulness. Blessings to you, and join us next week for more updates from Walker Boutique!
