Why I Give

Why I Give: St. John’s Lutheran Church

For decades St. John’s Lutheran Church in Emmaus has supported the work of Liberty’s Lutheran Congregational Services. The church goes well beyond just sending money when it comes to helping others. They invest their heart, soul and body into serving.

I thank my mom, Miriam Hoffman, for giving me a heart for older adults. Mom was a geriatric nurse. When I was growing up, she would take me along with her to nursing homes to visit her patients. I would attend their Christmas parties and other festivities. As a child, I loved it. I would become their surrogate grandchild.

In January 2011, I joined the Planned Giving committee at Liberty Lutheran. I have had family connections to Liberty for even longer, as my grandmother-in-law lived at Artman for a long time, and my Aunt has served on several board committees.

Why I Give: Peggie and Bob Keddie Jr.

My connection with Liberty Lutheran first began in the early 2000s when the Advancement Department was running a capital giving campaign at Paul’s Run. My mother was a resident at Paul’s Run for quite some time. She first moved into Independent Living, and then transitioned through each level of care until she passed. Having quite a connection to the community, I gave over the course of a three year period, and from there I was invited to join Liberty’s Board of Directors. I guess they figured I was a good guy.
