Ninth Annual Auction
was held March 16, 2013
The community response to our auction to raise programming funds for our center was fantastic! We had generous donations from local businesses and individuals making the event truly memorable. We had a record number of people attending from children to seniors. There were lots of good buys and "good hearted" buys. We auctioned large items (pallet of flooring, furniture), small items (jewelry ), live items (plants and flowers), liquid items (bottles of wine), outdoor items (chairs and child's picnic table), artsy items (Paintings, prints and pottery), literary items (books) and yummy homemade food items.
Our most unique auction item was a prototype designed and manufactured right here in Thomasville, the Boonedox Moonwalker all purpose utility cart. The << Moonwalker>> is a stainless steel cargo hauler that attaches to your receiver on the back of your vehicle. The Moonwalker has unlimited uses such as: beach cart, hunting, fishing, camping, tailgating, yard work, sporting events, boating. The uses are pretty much endless. You can go to their website to learn more about the newer model.
Everyone had fun thanks to Gary Nance, our auctioneer. Most left with their hearts, hands and bellies full. The auction raised $7,697 for our center. This will enable us to continue providing our valuable community programs. We wouldn't be here without the great support from this community.
Mark your calendars for our golf tournament on June 29 at Lexington Golf Club.
Agencies come together to feed more than 400 residents
By Deneesha Edwards The Dispatch, September 22, 2012
Volunteers from churches and agencies in conjunction with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest N.C. load boxes of food into a car at East Davidson High School on Saturday morning as part of Second Harvest's 30th anniversary food giveaway. A total of 450 individuals were each given more than 60 pounds of food, which is the equivalent of two healthy meals a day for one month.
"It's great. It gives all of us an opportunity to work together," said Terri Nelson, executive director of Fairgrove Family Resource Center. "This is a great joy for us to be a part of."
"Without a doubt, this is one of the most fabulous distributions I've seen, " Nelson said. "This will dramatically impact people's lives. There is so much need out there."See whole story
I am very grateful for the service and programs provided by Fairgrove Family Resource Center. They have provided my family with invaluable information that benefits us in so many ways. I think many families I know would benefit from taking parenting classes.
