TYLERS MISSION INC
November 29, 2010
For the past 13 yrs. tyler has been reaching out to the needy not only during the holiday season but throughout the entire yr as well. He started at age three and has gained a large volunteer base who, some are seasonal and others are year round help, with the food and clothing. Young Tyler is now 15 yrs. old and has a heart as big as gold. His mission helped over 20,000 families with an average of 5 children per household, last Christmas season. This year the numbers are well above that already sadly enough. Even though Tyler and his mission receives very little financial support, he has yet to turn away anyone who is in need of his help! He looks at all people as "his children", and goes beyond normal. For instance, his food ministry is suffering because of not enough donations, however, he gave personally from his food at his home so people could eat. It's just as well though because when he hears of someone going without food, he refuses to eat until he knows for certain whomever has food to eat as well. He's only 15 years old and I can promise you one thing, if you or anyone ever needed help during the holiday season(s),Christmas and Easter, needed clothes to wear, or food for your hunger pains, then Tyler would humbly be there with his arms extended willing to give you a helping hand. I'm one of his veteran volunteers who will help him with "his children" for many years to come. He's quite the missionary and with him no words are hardly spoken because his actions do sincerely speak louder than any word ever could.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I've personally experienced the sheer gratitude and relief of so many people relying on Tyler during their hour of need. So many thousands of people, tearfully hugging him and are genuinely grateful for the help that his mission has provided them. Tyler's really on a mission to do his part in helping as many people as possible.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Have a paid staff and the funding to keep it going on a day to day basis. It's so needed. A Grantwriter would be the first person on board as well as different staff members to oversea the diffent departments. I would also find a permanent building to operate from year round with a loading dock.
Volunteer & I've volunteered with the holiday gift giving of filling recipients orders to picking up and distributing clothing and food.
