A Letter from Sandi Keeney the Charity President

The roots of our organization dates back to 1995 when many volunteers began working together to take the children from the All Church Home for Children to a Texas Rangers baseball game once a year.

In 2004, at our annual outing at a Texas Ranger game, there was a girl there from the home that touched my heart. She and the house parents were very excited and everyone was buzzing about how she would be graduating from high school in just a couple of days. She and I talked about her future and her desire to go to college. She didn't mention money but my mind immediately began to think about how much money a college education would cost her and how difficult it was going to be for her to make it through. You see, I remember how difficult it was for me to finance my own education and I even had some help from good ole' mom and dad that I knew she would not have. Immediately I began to think about starting a scholarship fund and how I would really like to be a part of a charity that gives a leg up to kids like her. That is when I decided that I must try to raise money to help send these kids to college. So in 2005, I along with many other dedicated members, started this scholarship benefiting the All Church Home for Children. We selected two scholarship winners for 2005, selected two more for 2006, two more in 2008, and another one in 2009.

We decided to help kids from the All Church Home for Children, which has been helping children since 1915, and partners with children, youth and families to assist their transition through crisis to an optimal level of living. The children are placed with the home either voluntarily by their parents or by Child Protective Services because their parents are unable to care for them. The reasons vary in each case but some reasons include that their parents are deceased, incarcerated, or very ill. To find out more information about the All Church Home for Children, visit their website at www.theallchurchhome.org.

In 2008, the Kids Scholarship changed its structure and became part of a non-profit organization called Pitch In and Help Out. Pitch In and Help Out is ran by the same members but the broader structure has enabled us to provide more help to the kids and providing The Kids Scholarships is one of the many activities of Pitch In and Help Out but there are many more.

God bless everyone and thank you so much for your help.
