Our volunteers are the backbone of every program, event and offering that the coalition strives to provide. Nothing we do would be possible without the hundreds of people who give selflessly of their time, talents and money to our efforts. The mindset of the Coalition is that we can do more together than we can separately and this is only possible through the efforts of our volunteers. As we continue to serve our neighbors and work to increase our impact through new partnerships, it is only possible to serve more people by encouraging new people to serve. We are forever grateful to our incredible volunteers that work tirelessly to bring our vision to reality.
General store servant leader
"I have been married for 35 years. Rusty and I are empty nesters who live in White, GA. We have 4 married children and 5 grandchildren and 2 more on the way this year. I’m a home comfort sales person for a global company. I love to spend time with my family doing whatever they enjoy and traveling to places I have never been before. I love being by, on or in the water - fishing, swimming, boating, etc. I feel blessed beyond measure that God would allow me to be even a small part of anything that would bring glory to Him. I love the General Store and it’s mission of connecting with people who have a need for these goods so we can show them the unconditional love of Jesus. One of my favorite comments I heard from a woman who visited our store was “you people must really love people to come out in this rain to give away these items” - I gave her a big hug and told her “We love you!”. All people need to experience the love of Jesus but none of us individually can reach them all. I strive to always remember- love the one in front of you. Serving in Bless General Store gives me that opportunity. If you have 5-6 hours a month and are like me and looking for a place to give back and impact people for Jesus I would love for you to come out to the Bless General Store. We could never have too many workers."
