Tommy’s Story

kim and tommy REVISEDIn 2009, our son Tommy was born premature and was with us for three weeks. His three week journey defied the odds. His courage and strength were nothing less than a true inspiration.

It was after Tommy’s death that Kim & I changed our focus on life and through his inspiration we found a calling in serving others. Tommy is the reason that Tommy’s Gift exists. Kim & I have found personal reward from the lives that our great organization have touched. When your heart is pure and you sacrifice for others, you are rewarded sometimes more than those you have helped.  That experience redefined our life focus to one of compassion and action in helping those in need.

Tommy’s Gift was founded in 2012 as a faith based mission of the United Methodist Church of Plano whose focus was, and still is, to help local families who are in need of assistance with home maintenance and repairs.  We have been blessed to have made a real difference in the lives of many local families, and look forward to being available to any family in need in the future.

Thank you for visiting our site and helping us help others in loving memory of our son, Tommy.
