Will you help LifeSavers Foundation meet a year-end matching gift opportunity of $20,000.00?
As the Christmas and New Year’s holidays approach, the Board of Directors has been notified of a $20,000 matching gift opportunity that will be available through December 31, 2018. Receiving funds to match this gift would be the culmination of a successful year ministering to underserved women, children and families in the Dallas area.
God has allowed LifeSavers to offer services with its two programs:
1. The Doctor Spot Mobile Pediatric Clinic which offers free medical services to uninsured children ages 0-18 in Mesquite and Garland ISD’s and, beginning January 1, 2019, Dallas ISD. The Board is expecting a 10% increase in patients from 2017 which totaled 1,364. To date, the number of children treated stands at 1,372!
Chandra, the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, encountered a seventeen-year-old girl who came to the unit because she had missed a vein while shooting up meth. Her father had “introduced” her to meth when she was 12, and she has been using it ever since. Her physical injury was a hematoma, but her mental and psychological injuries are more far-reaching. Chandra spent time counseling her and praying with her. The Doctor Spot is reaching many forsaken teens. “I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.” John 4:35
2. LifeSavers Upscale Resale store has had over 860 clients in 2018 comprised of single moms, children and families who come to the store for assistance. That number is 15% more than 2017.
A young woman named Nahid came with her 3 children to the store. She is a victim of family violence and was in need of assistance for herself and her children. “Being kind to the poor is like lending to the Lord. He will reward you for what you have done.” Prov. 19:17
