Be Rich 2011 was our most successful giving and serving campaign yet. You’ve probably heard the numbers: nearly 16,000 service hours, 41 tons of donated food, and $2.1 million to meet the needs of the sick, hungry, low-income, and children-at-risk in our community and abroad. Absolutely amazing!
We were able to celebrate your generosity at the end of 2011. It was such a privilege.
Now it’s 2012. So, what does that mean for you in terms of serving others? From New Year’s resolutions to fleeting thoughts of Hey, serving was fun, I should do that again, we recognize—and hope!—that one of your desires for 2012 is to continue to be generous toward others.
Know that we’re here to help.
Two main options stand out for ways to prioritize service any time of the year.
First, if you participated in Be Rich 2011, we encourage you to continue supporting the nonprofit with whom you worked. Contact them for ways you can serve; go deeper and build a relationship with them. Or you can use the hang tag from the Be Rich food drive to help remind you to donate food monthly. Make it a family affair or an outing with friends by shopping together and then dropping off the food at Buckhead Christian Ministry (2847 Piedmont Road NE, Atlanta, GA 30305, open Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Thursdays until 8:00 p.m.).
Second, Buckhead Church’s Intersect Project is our year-round service outlet. We exist to make serving simple for the attendees and members of Buckhead Church. Visit the website and look for ongoing projects and additional one-time events.
When we represent the church through service, our impact on the community is magnified because our impact is collective. Join in! Be a part. Let’s continuing serving our neighbors in need in 2012.
