Beanies help people meet basic needs

In celebration of her 90th birthday, Robie Neal, Gilliland Foundation Emeritus Director, began loom knitting beanie hats to help individuals navigate the harsh journey of life and offer assistance to meet the basic needs of life that many people take for granted.

“One beanie hat may not change the world, but it could change the world for one person,” says Neal. She believes that lending a helping hand is one of the easiest things one can do to make a difference in this world.

Neal and Gilliland Foundation Board Chair Diane Gilliland, parlayed a 35-year friendship, and a passion for helping others, into a program to support children battling cancer and assist organizations like A Storehouse For Jesus.

Established in 2017, the Gilliland Foundation’s mission is to create opportunities to bring joy and hope to people who need it most.

“We are thrilled to provide Beanie Hats to A Storehouse For Jesus,” said Neal. “When our giving committee recommended this organization, I was eager to visit the facility and meet the volunteers. You sense the care and compassion as you walk throughout the building. It is the epitome of what the Bible teaches about charity.”

The 4th Annual Swing For Charity Golf Tournament will be on Saturday, May 22 at Pudding Ridge Golf Course. Presented by the Gilliland Foundation, the proceeds will once again benefit A Storehouse For Jesus. For more information on this year’s tournament, and how to help the foundation, visit GillilandFoundation.org.
