Giving is better than receiving because giving starts the receiving process.

Harvest Youth Club Roofing Project
It’s places like the Harvest Youth Club in Harvest, Al that make a huge difference our communities. Mr. & Mrs. Allen have dedicated their lives to bettering their community and making an impact on the lives of so many youth. Their dedication and sacrifice is unforgettable. Today was a special day for the Goody Vault team since we were able to donate $1000 to the Harvest Youth Club’s New Roof Project. In the words of Mr. Allen, “We need an insulated roof to keep our kids cool in the summer and warm in the winter”. Ha! He used this line repeatedly to recruit donors and it worked. It is an amazing feeling being able to give back to a place that has given so much! Especially to us.
