New Fund Announcement:
Archie's Promise Donor Advised Fund
Archie Alexander Cox was born on April 16, 2021. Weighing 4 pounds 12 ounces and measuring 17.5 inches long, he arrived with a head full of dark, wavy hair, long legs, and a sweet little chin. Archie lived four days on this earth. During his brief time here, he was surrounded with love and care...

Through their grief, they have found a way to give back to the community that has supported them. Kelley shared, “My heart overflows with gratitude for everyone who has taken time to join us through this time in our lives. We are incredibly humbled by the outpouring of love, prayer, thoughtfulness, and genuine compassion that has been displayed to us. We ask that you continue to pray for our family and for Archie’s Promise to be exactly what God intends it to be!”
