”As one person I cannot change the world, but I can change the world of one person.” – Paul Shane Spear
Shelly Cook is steadfast in her mission to give back to God’s people through her First Fruits program. First Fruits has been designed to tithe directly to people in need because she devoutly believes that people are the church.
Shelly has created the program as a way to give back through her two businesses, SL Cook Development and Servants Hands Construction, the builder/developer companies leading the Junewood Estates project.
In this program, 10% of every house constructed by SL Cook Development and Servants Hands Construction goes into First Fruits. From there, Shelly and her team collect letters and emails from people in the community who either need financial assistance themselves, or who wish to nominate someone else in the community in need of assistance..
Through her own local community, Shelly has found that many people’s basic needs are not being met or there aren’t sufficient resources to cover the needs that exist. There are so many ways people can use a little extra help, whether it’s a single mom struggling to make ends meet who needs her rent paid, or a severely damaged roof that needs fixing for a family’s safety, but they do not have the resources to do it themselves. First Fruits steps in to make a difference and change the world for that one person or family.
We are currently collecting nominations for First Fruits!
If you know of someone in your community who needs a little extra help, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the form below.
First Fruits covers a variety of projects, such as:
- Construction Projects (roofs, ramps, and other important household improvements)
- Rent assistance
- Grocery assistance
