  • Several Fort Worth Campus Employees Turn a Holiday Gift into a Chance to Help Families in Need

    Contributed by Joy Cornwell, Campus Librarian

    The 2010 Remington College - Fort Worth holiday party featured food, fun, photos, and prizes as Campus administrators handed out several gift certificates for a holiday dinner from a local restaurant called Luby's. The gift certificates were good for a family of 4 to 6 people, including all of the side dishes for a perfect holiday meal.

    True to the Campus's ongoing spirit of giving, several of our faculty and staff saw this event as an opportunity to give back to their community and help others who are less fortunate.

    Gifts to Chosen Generation Fellowship

    Two staff members in Remington College - Forth Worth Campus's Network Technology Center, Christina Shaw and Matt Riggs, donated their gift certificates to Chosen Generation Fellowship, a Tarrant County food bank that offers missions outreach.

    Christina said, "When Matt and I received our gift certificates for a dinner from Luby's, we were discussing how we already had our food in place for the holidays, and so both of us decided to donate our certificates. I gave both of them to my sister-in-law, whose church sponsors the Tarrant County food bank. It just seemed like the right thing to do, to bless others."

    Gifts to the Church With No Walls Ministry

    Faculty members Tonia Lawrence, Scott Cogswell, Dena Soszynski, and Rhonda Abbott, along with staff members Mary Weaver, Chantel Jones, Lauren Zimmer, Stephanie Tanksley, and Emily Foltz, had the same idea. They donated their certificates to the Church With No Walls Ministry in Fort Worth, whose motto is "Together, we can give hope to low-income families and be a part of making dreams come true."

    For Matt Riggs and Christina Shaw, thanks were expressed in a letter that included a photo of the individual whose family they fed this holiday season.

    Special thanks go out to all the thoughtful and caring individuals who gave the gift of hope and kindness this past holiday season.
