My name is Pamela Royster, I have volunteered for Womb Ministries an 501c3 organization in Nashville, Tennessee for over 8 years. I am retired from the US Army after serving over 21 years. Womb Ministries is an awesome non-profit. It is ran by rev Emily and William Shropshire. I volunteered as the administrator for about 3 years, During that time it was very rewarding to me. During this time my son was incarnated. I was a single mother, helping to raise my grandchildren. I was not working due to medical problems. rev Emily supported me through this time with food, Christmas gifts for my grandkids and counseling. I decided if I couldn't physically touch my son, I would try to help someone else son or daughter who needed encouragement. I would help with teaching basic computers skills, writing resumes, mock interviews and job search for those who came by the center. Once they completed the required classes they would get certificates of completions to take to their job interviews. Womb works with those coming out of prison or jail, homeless, jobless, or anyone needing counseling for drugs or alcohol. or just someone to talk to. We give food for those who are hunger or clothing for those who need some for their family. I love giving my time but I love giving financially. Womb is so worthy of receiving the $10,000. We have an annual fundraiser call the "Hallelujah Ball. We receive support from the Titans, country singers, gospel singer, 92Q FM , 760 AM and other local businesses in Nashville. All of the monies we receive to keep Womb Ministry going is from donations. Every one, including rev Shropshire and William volunteer. We do not receive a salary. I will includes pictures of those graduating, Hallelujah Ball and classes. I am in one of the pictures with the green gown on with rev Emily. We are in partnership with the Midtown Police Precinct where we having monthly meetings there for the Edgehill Community. Mr. and Mrs. Gates, I hope in the future when you are in Nashville please come by and visit us. My contact number is 615-738-1106. rev Emily Shropshire and Womb Ministries is (615) 689-6827.
