WEEK IN REVIEW: You'll love Louisville

WEEK IN REVIEW: You'll love Louisville

By Chris Johnson, Director of Communications Last April I visited Louisville, Kentucky, for the very first time. My knowledge of the place was limited to having watching the great Louisville basketball team, a few Kentucky Derbies and swinging a Louisville Slugger baseball bat or two. And while I was there, I saw where the Louisville […]

WEEK IN REVIEW: Everybody can help

WEEK IN REVIEW: Everybody can help

By Chris Johnson, Director of Communications One of the things I’ve always appreciated is companies who strive to employ disabled persons. Not only does it directly impact the person that’s employed by giving them a chance to contribute, but it also shows me that a company has heart. I’m sure some of it stems from […]

WEEK IN REVIEW: Persistence pays off

By Chris Johnson, Director of Communications Hundreds of nonprofits in the state of Georgia were very busy Wednesday, which was Georgia Gives Day here. One of our covenant partners, The Fuller Center of Macon, had an exceptionally good experience, raising more than $6,700 in 24 hours. They did it mostly with a daylong, hour-by-hour social […]

By Chris Johnson, Director of Communications I learned a couple new things this week. I know — I’m amazed, too! I thought I had quit learning new things midway through eighth grade! One of the things I learned was very good. I knew there were online shopping portals out there that helped nonprofits like The […]

WEEK IN REVIEW: For goodness snakes

WEEK IN REVIEW: For goodness snakes

By Chris Johnson, Director of Communications I have just a few fears. I’m scared of heights — or at least scared of plummeting from them. I’m scared of the power bill. And I’m scared of meetings, especially conference calls. But my fear of snakes probably trumps them all. I’ve had to deal with more than […]

WEEK IN REVIEW: Good reasons to give

WEEK IN REVIEW: Good reasons to give

By Chris Johnson, Director of Communications Have you ever seen The Fuller Center for Housing’s massive, ostentatious international headquarters here in Americus? No, you haven’t because we work in a quaint, cozy former Chinese restaurant that was donated to us by someone who appreciated the grass-roots nature and modest Christian principles behind what we do.
