Recently, a donor visited KARM Stores in Oak Ridge to make a donation. After receiving his donation, the gentleman left and returned later that afternoon to share this encouragement.
I get joy knowing that instead of a person sleeping on a cardboard box, they get to sleep in a bed. I get joy knowing that a person who might go hungry will get a meal to eat just because of the work that is provided through this store. I know it’s not easy going through all these donations and getting them ready to sell. And you may not think what you do is important or that your work does not matter. But I personally know it is very important.
I have a son who was on drugs. His life held no meaning and he had lost hope. We turned to Knox Area Rescue Ministries who took him in and gave him the hope, the help, and the love that he needed.
I will be ever grateful to the Knox Area Rescue Ministries for what they did and to KARM Stores for making it happen through the work they do.
As the gentleman started to leave he turned to us with these last encouraging words, “Never let anyone tell you that your job is not important!”
