An expression of gratitude

LEAP OrganizationClarksville, TN – So often non-profit organizations and churches take their noble missions for granted in expecting businesses and individuals to support their programs. While there is the tax write off incentive and brand marketing exposure for contributions, it takes a special kind of person to weigh the needs of the business against the needs of the organization requesting assistance.

LEAP Executive Director Richard “Reason” Garrett had this to say, “I, myself have been guilty of utilizing media to solicit support for various projects to better our community. Although, it’s for a worthy cause, I recognize that we must do a better job of acknowledging those who make our outreach efforts possible.”

Thank You!

The LEAP Organization along with First Missionary Baptist Church would first like to thank The Leaf Chronicle, Clarksville Online, WQZQ 101.9, Channel 10, and Sites & Sutton for providing us with a platform share news, events, and community stories. We would also like to thank businesses such as Millan Enterprises, F&B Bank, Sam’s Club, Prudential Professional Realty, Joe Hietz Toyota, Blue Cross Blue Shield, America Choice, Bennett’s Photography, Dairy Queen, Taco Bell, Pepsi, and the Convenient Shopper Magazine

Lastly, but definitely not least we would like to thank H.O.P.E ,NAACP, , C.A.R.E., Labor of Love Ministries, Flourishing Families, the United Way of Clarksville, and the Emmanuel Family Life Center. These agencies make due with limited resources in order to continue to reach out to help those in need. It is our pleasure to serve alongside these organizations as well our local churches in an effort strengthen families and encourage youth to be productive and responsible citizens.
