A Family Tradition: 80 Years of Caring for Others – A Donor Story

By June 23, 2022September 8th, 2022No Comments

For Wendy, supporting the ministry of Scott Mission is a family tradition that started with her grandmother nearly 80 years ago.

“I was very charmed by my grandmother,” she says. “When I was 7, I heard where her heart was . . . she was quietly putting money in missions.

“My mother was very fond of my grandmother, so she continued to support Scott Mission. When my mother died, I took over—and I’m 86 now.

“Scott Mission is doing the kind of work that, to me, is essential. It’s not about anything other than equality and justice. Recognizing people for who they are and what they are.”

Wendy is deeply concerned about those among us who are facing hunger and homelessness. She says, “They need friends, respect, and companionship . . . that warm feeling of being cared for and loved. They need the people who are doing the mission work.”

We are truly humbled and grateful for the prayers and partnership of three generations of compassionate family members who gave from the heart to ease suffering and share hope with people facing a difficult time in life.

Thank you to everyone who chooses to support Scott Mission! Your gift again today will make meals, help, and hope available to people who are struggling and in great need.

It’s a long-standing family tradition for Wendy M. to give from the heart and care for others with urgent needs services, like food and shelter, while also sharing Christ’s mercy and love.

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.” —Matthew 25:35 NIV
