L.I.F.T. R&R is excited to start preparing for our annual event to provide assistance to eligible households at no charge.
The event will be held on October 23rd, 2021 from 8:00am to 3:00pm at Victory Church 1008 Erwin Avenue, McKinney Texas 75069 as part of McKinney’s Make a Difference Day. “Another Man’s Treasure” will focus on helping those in poverty by GIVING AWAY donated new and gently used clothing, household items, furniture, gas and food gift cards and much more, while providing resources with financial literacy to help assist them with future money management choices. In addition we bring local nonprofits to the event to meet our families and offer their services resulting in direct access.
Last year, our 2020 goal was serving 25 families, we exceeded the goal by serving 37 families with direct impact. We collaborated with multiple nonprofits including McKinney Family YMCA, Alliance for Elite Youth Leadership, HOPE Clinic, First United Bank of Sherman, McKinney Housing Authority, Victory Church, Aleph 2 Omega, and McKinney Goodwill, along with businesses, and donors, to have not only physical give a-ways but practical takeaways such as free resources for families from infants to geriatric.
Because of generous donors and supporters, we were able to provide $1100.00 in Wal-Mart gift cards, $200.00 in WinCo gift cards, 3 kids bikes, 1 adult bike, 3 YMCA family memberships, over 100 food boxes, bath and body works, 2 cases of bibles, a case of the Purpose for Marriage books, 1000's of dollars of clothing furniture and home décor all GIVEN AWAY. Our volunteers were amazing. Victory Church was a gracious, beyond generous host. The Non Profits represented were

The collaboration helped so many people in awesome ways, most importantly they are now aware of resources in their community and as a faith based organization we can truly say that God provided for all.
As we prepare for the 2021 event, we want to extend the opportunity for sponsors, agencies and other nonprofits to join us in making this an exceptional day for those we will serve. Any in-kind donations (banners, print work, swag bags, raffle prizes, gas or grocery gift cards and refreshments & drinks for our “Refreshing Station” would be greatly appreciated). We are a 501C3 nonprofit and all donations are tax deductible.
