Hey, it’s BigHouse!
Hi everyone! We hope you all have had a wonderful holiday season with your families and are excited for the new year. BigHouse is back and ready to start this new year off right! With the coming of this new year came some exciting changes that we would like to tell everyone about.
First off, we have a new staff member on our team! Tatum Meadows has recently joined our staff as the new Assistant Director. Tatum is an Opelika native and is looking forward to being back in her hometown. Tatum attended Troy University and graduated with a degree in Human Services. She developed her love for non-profit ministries during her time at Troy, and was thrilled to join the BigHouse team!
Our interns for this semester are Hannah Gipson and Emily McCarron. Emily is originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Hannah is from Prattville, Alabama. Both are seniors at Auburn University and are excited to be working with BigHouse this semester. We are excited to have them with BigHouse for this spring semester and see how well they serve!
This semester comes with lots of fun and exciting events to be on the lookout for! The annual BigHouse banquet is February 23rd and is a great opportunity to learn more about what we do and how get involved. Glitz, Glam, and Gowns will be on March 10th in Birmingham and is our formal dress shopping event open to high school girls in foster care. Our monthly Kid’s Night Out and Mom’s Meet Up nights are back in full swing so keep an eye on our newsletter and website for those dates! Lastly, the annual Swimsuit and Towel Drive is right around the corner and more information will be coming soon on details and deadlines for it!
BigHouse is excited for this new year! We are hopeful that it will be a year full of serving new and existing families, successful events to help support our families, a growth in community knowledge and support for BigHouse, and a lot of FUN! For more information on BigHouse, our upcoming events, and ways to get involved you can check out our website, www.ourbighouse.org, and our Facebook page. BigHouse is beyond thankful for the ways the Lord blessed us in 2016 and is
excited to see how He continues to bless us in 2017!
