McDONOUGH — It is the season for giving, and that is just what the congregation at Timberridge Presbyterian Church has done.

The church has donated undisclosed amounts to four local charities.

Joyce Rodgers represented the Timberridge Presbyterian as she delivered the check donations by hand recently to Haven House, A Friend’s House, Connecting Henry and Helping in His Name Ministries Food Pantry.

Haven House, under the direction of Marjorie Lacy, is a domestic abuse shelter serving Jasper, Lamar, Butts and Henry counties.

A Friend’s House, led by Director Gary Wright, is a McDonough-based home for children in crisis.

Susan Crumbley is director of Connecting Henry, a nonprofit branch of the Georgia Family Connection Partnership, which is charged with identifying and connecting resources in the community to uplift local families.

Helping In His Name Ministries Food Pantry serves hundreds of local families weekly and helps link them with other helpful organizations like the aforementioned charity groups.
