MCH Family Outreach in Waco was recently blessed by a donation that some might say is worth its weight in gold.
Brailee Welch, who works at her grandfather’s business Quality Parts Supply, contacted Methodist Children’s Home asking if she could donate 300 rolls of toilet paper in light of the shortages being seen in stores.
“We had a large surplus and my grandfather asked me to find a nonprofit we could donate it to,” Welch said. “As I asked around, MCH kept coming up.”
The timing could not have been better, said Brooke Davilla, program administrator for the Eastern offices of MCH Family Outreach.
“In Waco, like many of the other 12 communities we serve around Texas and New Mexico, basic necessities such as toilet paper and food have been challenging to access during the COVID-19 crisis,” Davilla said. “Our case managers are working tirelessly to connect with the families we serve to ensure they have what they need for their families to thrive. Just before learning about this donation, we had been talking about how to help these families find toilet paper.”
“If you look for the helpers, you’ll know that there is hope,” Davilla said, quoting television personality Fred Rogers, the creator of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood. “We are encouraged that in times of crisis people are still looking to serve and support others,” she said. “We are thankful for ministry partners and God’s provision that allows us to continue the mission of offering hope.”
“We are so happy to be able to help and are glad it will be a blessing to others,” Welch said.
