Marcus Gardner

May 3, 2019 - Josh Crawford with Shelby County Outreach Ministies (SCOM) shares a story about Marcus Gardner, a Center ISD student, who is trying to do his part. He told his teacher that he wanted to change the world, but didn't think he alone could do something. His teacher then got him to make up a poster and he began collecting items in his classroom.

Marcus and his teacher, Melissa Munoz, stopped by Shelby County Outreach Ministries, Inc. on Friday, May 3rd to donate the items he had collected which included household items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoos, lotions, etc. that would help those in need in our community.

Crawford shared that Marcus said that he especially hopes to help the homeless; and unfortunately, Shelby County does have its share of people who find themselves without a place to stay. Crawford advised SCOM assists these people the best that they can including giving them items such as these.

"Marcus, changing the world starts with people like you. I know one thing for sure, people in our community will definitely be impacted by your caring heart. Thank you so much for dropping by and donating these much-needed items!" said Crawford to this amazing young man.

If Marcus Gardner's caring heart inspires you, let his act of kindness carry on by making a donation to SCOM in Marcus' name and show what the example of one individual can do for a community. Shelby County Today was impressed by Marcus and made a $100 donation.
