Gabby Offers Support To Lifeline Adoption Ministries
Each year, Alabama-based furniture wholesaler Gabby makes a commitment to support one deserving charity that has an impact on both a local and global scale. This year, Gabby’s president, William White, has chosen to build a relationship with Lifeline, a faith-based foster care and adoption ministry. In order to nurture this partnership, Gabby has offered financial support in addition to the donation of several furniture and home décor items to the silent auction that Lifeline hosts at its yearly fundraising banquet.
A Mission Of Hope
Although Gabby is a supplier of traditional, eclectic, and antique-style furniture and lighting, the company also recognizes the importance of supporting organizations that make the world a better place, both at home and abroad. Gabby chose to partner with Lifeline because William White was intrigued by Lifeline’s inspiring mission. Lifeline’s mission is to offer assistance to children and families locally and internationally in order to improve the lives of these children.
So what does Lifeline actually do? The organization is primarily focused on offering excellent foster care and adoption services, but Lifeline’s impact spills over into almost every aspect of the children’s lives. For instance, Lifeline provides financial assistance that helps with health care and works to improve the educational opportunities of the children. But Lifeline isn’t content to stop there – the organization’s work also extends to developing the emotional well-being of the orphans.
Lifeline’s network of social workers isn’t limited to serving orphans, however, as the organization also strives to assist families in need. For example, birth mothers who are in the process of choosing adoption can turn to Lifeline for help with food, medical care, transportation, and emotional and spiritual support.
The (Un)adopted Program
Even if social workers have a hard time placing orphaned children in the program, Lifeline offers protection for these children thanks to the (un)adopted program. This branch of the organization provides care for orphans for as long as needed until an adoptive family is found. These orphans receive education and vocational training as well as financial assistance with any medical costs.
How Can I Help?
Over the last 2 years, Lifeline has experienced tremendous growth with new offices opening in 7 states and connections with children from 9 different countries who will be placed with families in the U.S. However, the work is far from over! If you’re interested in getting involved, Lifeline accepts one-time or recurring contributions at www.lifelinechild.org.
Those who are interested in a more active involvement should consider participating in Lifeline’s upcoming run in Birmingham that will raise money to support the (un)adopted program.
