‘Changing our community’: BeGenerous collects diapers, food, furniture for needy families

Published: Thursday, November 15, 2012 at 04:03 PM.

And for a mother of a six-child blended family, wife to a disabled husband, and a full-time worker outside of BeGenerous, it is a balancing act.

But she says she’s no Wonder Woman.

“God does it for me,” she said. “Honestly, I think he turns the clock back throughout the day giving me a few more hours so I can do it all.”

And she’s just thankful to act as a conductor of good will.

“Many, believe it or not, come back to me asking if they can pay it forward,” said McMinn. “Giving those in need hope, instilling their faith in God … It is truly a blessing to be a part of.”

To help BeGenerous, email McMinn at begenerousinc@ymail.com, call her or Courtney Hatten at 974-3170, or visit begenerousinc.org or gmommasmission.blogspot.com.

McMinn says the greatest need is diapers, though they accept food items, clothing, furniture, and other family necessities. Drop-off locations for small items are La Florida Coastal Properties in Grayton Beach at Grayton Corners and Prime Lending, 36164 Emerald Coast Parkwayin Destin. Email McMinn for drop-off of larger items.
