Recognizing all 36 Charity Champions!

Gameday Podcast:

The Voice of the Bears John Morris talks with 360 Solutions Founder and CEO Chip Wilson about the origins of the Charity Champions program. Chip was live with John ahead of Baylor’s game against Texas where we honored all 36 Charity Champions.

Instead of recognizing just one Charity Champion at this week’s Baylor Football game, TFNB Your Bank For Life and 360 Solutions invited all 36 Charity Champions back on the field to spotlight the great work they are doing in the community. Have a nonprofit you think needs recognition? Nominate them for next season!

Check out the video we played on the jumbotron below:

Care Net hosted Tim Tebow as guest speaker at their annual “Celebrate Life” Banquet. The annual event is a fundraiser for the nonprofit. TFNB Your Bank For Life also supported the event as top sponsor.

Since 2004, the Care Net Pregnancy Center of Central Texas has served over 2,600 clients each year for pregnancy testing. They listen to the concerns of the women they serve, provide accurate and factual information about all of their pregnancy choices, and provide compassionate care. 

Tim Tebow’s story made him a great choice to speak at the event: Tim’s mother became pregnant with him while living in the Philippines as a missionary. She contracted amoebic dysentery through contaminated drinking water. Her doctor told her the medication she was on would damage the fetus and abortion was the best course of action. She refused and Tim Tebow went on to win the Heisman trophy, play in the NFL, and now play baseball professionally for the New York Mets.

More about Children's Advocacy Center of Central Texas

At Children’s Advocacy Center Of Central Texas (CACCT), their mission is to provide comprehensive services to protect, promote healing, and enhance the quality of life for abused and neglected children. No child should have to experience that kind of pain and horror. They work tirelessly to create bright futures for children who have suffered this injustice.

In 2017, more than 1,400 children were confirmed victims of child abuse in Central Texas. These children need specialized services, starting with investigation and proceeding through rehabilitation. Our programs are designed to reduce the effects of trauma on these young children and ensure that collaborative investigation and recovery services are available for them.

EP 18: Gameday Special

Happy Thanksgiving week, everyone! This is Randy Lane with a special edition of the Charity Champions podcast. We’re going to play two interviews from last week’s Baylor game. 

First, we’ll hear Sheree Corn’s interview with the voice of the bears, John Morris. She’s in charge of community outreach at Pack of Hope. She’ll explain how their organization is erasing hunger by giving food-insecure kids bags of nutritious snack over the weekend. A lot these kids would otherwise go several days without anything to eat. 

After that, we’ll hear John’s interview with David Littlewood, president of TFNB Your Bank For Life. He talks about the importance of community banking, new locations, and creating a better Waco by supporting nonprofits. Let’s listen!
