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 couches, appliances, 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.
