In January of 2019, This dream had been almost 5 years in the making. My Dad, Ralph Glenn, was my inspiration for starting this endeavor. His story is extraordinary in many ways. He was born in Iuka, MS in a two-room house with an open hall down the middle. The 5th of seven children, he grew up in a family where love was substituted with self-righteousness and greed. Despite this, he came away from a childhood like that with a servant and giving heart. He was one of the most generous men I have ever known and as I grew up, I saw that with my own eyes.
My dad was the type of man that you could meet and after 5 minutes, you would have thought you had known him for years. He never met a stranger. And if you were his friend and were in need, he was always there. Some took advantage of that generosity but I never heard him complain. He was not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but he was a great father that loved and provided for his wife of 50+ years along with his 4 children and 9 grandchildren. He also never minded telling you how proud he was of all of them!
My Father passed away in April of 2012. I was absolutely blown away by his funeral. People stood in line for over two hours to pay their respects and the church sanctuary was packed the day of the service. He touched so many lives with his generous and loving heart. He is the true inspiration of our mission to help individuals and families in need, whether it be physically, financially, or spiritually. We want to make a real difference in our community, and we hope you will come along for the ride!
