George Charles Garman 09/09/09 to 01/29/10

January 29, 2010 our world was turned upside down when our 4 month old little boy earned his wings after a battle with Mitochondrial Disease and awoke in the Lords loving arms.

George's Guardian's of Grace Projects

Stocking project is now in full force collecting donations. We have a list of the items we can use. You can also choose to sponsor a stocking in memory or honor of someone else. We will include a paragraph or two in the cards we place in the stockings to let the recipient know about the person that means so much to you. Our paypal account is posted on this page and ready to take donations. Email us for a list of items needed or with any questions or information you would like included on a sponsored stocking/donation.

George's Guardian's of Grace

Below is something I posted on Facebook and want to share with everyone. We are going to do a coat drive in George's memory for the holiday season. Please consider donating used items.

As the holiday season approaches, we are reminded of God's sacrifice for us and the blessing we were given on Christmas when he sent his only son to Earth. Having lost a child myself, I know this was no easy task and know how truly great that sacrifice really is. That being said, each year our family tries to do something special to help those less fortunate. We struggle ourselves and often need assistance to provide Christmas for the kids but we never forget that there are always those who are in an even tougher place. Our church serves dinner to the homeless in Camden once a month. As the weather gets colder and the economy gets worse, they are in even more need now then ever before.

How many of you walk to your closet each day to decide what shoes you will wear or coat you will wear? There are so many that don't even have the option because they don't own anything to keep them warm. Our family has decided to put together a drive to collect coats, shoes, blankets, and hats/gloves that will be taken to Camden to bring warmth to those less fortunate. Each year we want to do something special in George's memory to help others during the holiday season. If you happen to have some shoes you don't wear, old blankets, coats your kids have outgrown or ones you don't wear, we will gladly take them off your hands. These items can be any size, for male/female, or adults/children's. There is such a great need for these things as each night gets colder heading into the winter months ahead.

Please contact me if you have items that we can put to use. We are going to call those who do things in George's memory "George's Guardians of Grace" and this drive all items will be taken to St. Paul's soup kitchen in Camden. If you would like to even go further and volunteer your time to help serve, once a month our church goes as a group to help and they are in the process of redoing the kitchen are are holding a fundraiser at the Mansion in Voorhees. Should you like more information or if you would like to help out in anyway please don't hesitate to contact us.
