My son has started a charity and we would like to perpetuate the giving and donating locally as much as possible. West Chester has Reach Out Lakota,but Monroe doesn't really have an avenue to help others in this community.So please visit our website at www.drewsbiggive.com.
Drew's Big Give has received donations from KB Toys, The Kroger Company, Procter and Gamble and was even featured on Oprah.
About Drews Big Give
Drews Big Give started out with Shannon’s
Son Drew wanting to give away his 5th birthday’s presents to a
family who would enjoy some new toys. The idea quickly exploded though when
they realized that this particular family needed more than what one boy’s birthday
party could do. Soon Shannon was able to get
family, friends and the local church involved in the Big Give.
Soon thereafter, Drew's cause received more beds, more
etc., than one family could use. Through more phone calls, the
Friends were unable
to find a center to send people wanting to donate big items.
With no alternatives for the items the family and friends decided to start
their own charity that would give the
big items that no other charities would take to local families in need. Hence,
the formation of Drew’s Big Give.
