A pattern of service
The Duvall family of Peachtree City, Georgia, is a model of service, volunteering and giving financially. They have made this a priority in their lives.
Kevin and Shannon Duvall, together with their teen daughters Anna and Ellie, have long been actively giving of themselves in their community. In addition to Midwest Food Bank of Peachtree City, the Duvalls also support:
• Bloom (Bloom Closet). This organization provides Georgia's foster children with free clothing, shoes, baby gear, books, toys and school supplies.
• Young Life. Young Life spreads the message of Jesus Christ to the youth of Fayette County.
• FCA of Gallatin Valley, MT. This new ministry chapter was started by a local educator who moved to that area.
Shannon is also a mentor for the Fayette County BOE Friends Mentoring Program, and Kevin has volunteered at the Central Men's Shelter in downtown Atlanta. They also lead a small group at their church.
With all of this service, it would seem like the Duvall family wouldn't have much spare time. Both of the girls are involved in soccer. When not attending their games, they like to watch Atlanta United games.
The Duvalls learned about MFB Georgia through their church. They appreciate the fact that MFB is a faith-based organization. For them, the MFB mission meets one of the commands Christians have by feeding those in need. They find the MFB Georgia leadership inspiring. MFB allows them to participate in providing both physical and spiritual nourishment to God's children. One of the girls even made her 10th birthday party a volunteering event at MFB.
MFB Georgia is a good fit for the Duvalls, as families with children can volunteer together. They like to make the connection between what they are doing and who will be receiving the benefit. This summer, Anna and Ellie have been participating in the lunch load-out program.
In addition to their volunteer support, the Duvalls also provide financial support on an ongoing basis through MFB's Share Partner program. Their consistent gift allows MFB Georgia to plan for future operations. Thank you, Kevin, Shannon, Anna and Ellie, for your service and generosity.
