BENEFITING: Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, Inc.
Marvel Polk sells the homeless newspaper at the Hillsboro Village Post Office where I get my mail. He and I have become friends over the last year (he and Birdie as well)! Marvel has had a tough life to say the least but I am drawn to his wonderful, positive attitude. He is a Christian man who has a passion for ministry. And let me tell you, even though he has some speech issues, this man can preach!!! We managed to get Marvel into American Baptist College recently. He has a room to stay in and everything. A few weeks ago, I took him to Wal-Mart to get what he needed for school and his room. Boy was that a trip!! We got out of there after a few hours with linens, towels, toiletries, clothes, alarm clock,,etc.... Over the next few years, Marvel will be needing assistance with tuition, books, supplies, etc. In order to help me celebrate my 40th birthday on September 26, I want to ask you to give to Marvel's cause. I am committed to matching what is raised. I will administer the funds over time as they are needed to help Marvel finish college and move into his vocation of ministry. Thanks in advance for your assistance. Kent
