Quite often we may miss the gems surrounding us, and how much of a tremendous blessing they are. There are amazing nonprofits in McKinney such as Mission Regan, that give away free medical supplies such as electric wheelchairs, rollators, walkers, and more! I didn't know about Mission Regan until someone told me about them. I'm sure glad they did.
We can find the brightest light in the darkest time and that is what Mission Regan did for my family. You see my mother-in-law was battling cancer, and at points of her chemo, walking became difficult, I asked if anyone knew of a discounted place for medical walkers and I was told that Mission Regan donates these to people in need. They were right. I contacted them and within 24 hours we had a walker! In a short amount of time, my mother-in-law lost complete ability to walk and needed an electric wheelchair and you guessed it! Mission Regan donated that to us as well. Although my mother-in-law lost her battle with cancer, Mission Regan helped us help her during the difficult journey and we are forever grateful. We were able to donate those items back to Mission Regan so they can be used again to help another family in need.
Just as Mission Regan made a difference in our lives, On October 23rd, we will make a difference in the lives of 40 other families! 15 nonprofits will collaborate to bring a day of hope and joy to families in need! These families will be selected via an application process and will be based on the greatest need. They will be invited to come to this exclusive event where they will be connected directly with nonprofits, receive free furniture, free clothing, free home decor, gift cards, and more! It is one of the ways that we can touch the lives of others in a practical way and show them the gift of compassion.
This event will be held on October 23rd, 2021 from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm by invitation only at Victory Church 1008 Erwin Avenue, McKinney Texas 75069 as part of McKinney’s Make a Difference Day. “Another Man’s Treasure” speaker helping people with practical financial literacy will be Scott Elliott, from Community Lifeline Center who we are so honored to have.
