Providing security and comfort to a child in crisis...
As Mom to a special needs adult, I have been advocating for children for quite some time. I met Debbie while attending a Network Barrow Meeting. My business offers Administrative Expertise to small businesses and AB needed a website. Two years later, whatever Ms. Debbie needs...I try to provide! I am honored to serve on the AB Board and love watching it grow every year!
Being a butcher for so long and loving what I do has made me a people person. I say I'm in the people business, just happen to be selling meat. Loving children (they are people too) especially those who are in crisis and can't fend for themselves makes me want to give all I have to make things better.

​Debbie has been many things in her lifetime but Adventure Bags is her pride and joy. Founded by her daughter, she works tirelessly everyday to make everything work. From writing grant requests to packing bags to picking up donations to finding ways to pay the bills...Debbie is amazing! Without her...AB would still be a dream and thanks to all the volunteers she finds, AB would never be able to serve so many.

I came to adventure bags once out of curiosity, and I come every other time out of love. What we do here is amazing. 

One child at a time, we make the difference. There is a child in crisis somewhere and it is our job to help them, to help them feel loved, to help them not to be scared or lonely, to help them know that there is hope! My parents taught me at a young age that there was nothing better than giving of our time and talents to others. They were living examples of what it was to be a servant leader.
