Military Toy Drive - December 2016

Amy Wilemon and I dropped off toys and gift cards last week and Amy was able to take a quick video. What a blessing it was to witness all of the donations the Georgia National Guard received. Thank you to my friends, Stephanie Rice and Malena Hankins, and their businesses for serving as donation collection points. Thank you so much to our friends and business partners, Silverton Mortgage and Dickerson Heating and Air, that donated this year..... giving 423 children a very happy Christmas! If you donated at a different location and I don't have your name, please forgive me. Merry ChristmasðŸÅ½…ðŸÅ½„❤

Chip in for a Cause: Charity Golf Tournament - September 2016

This is an annual golf tournament supporting the Silverton Foundation. We are proud to be a sponsor of this event. The Silverton Foundation raises money to pay the mortgage or rent for the parents of chronically or critically ill children. Often they can't work when health issues cripple their child and may be evicted if they don't receive financial help. 

You can still make a donation to this worthy cause. All monies go to the families and none is deducted for management or marketing fees.

We wanted to send a BIG thank you to everyone who donated, volunteered, and helped spread the word!
