A Season of Giving - The MUST Ministry Way

Please join us as we give thanks by giving back.

This week we are proud to spotlight MUST Ministries located in Marietta, Georgia.  MUST Ministries provides food, housing, toys and more, to the needy and the homeless. For more than 45 years, MUST has established itself as a servant leader caring for those in need in the Marietta, Smyrna and Canton/Cherokee County communities. Founded in 1971 by the Rev. Wayne Williams, MUST Ministries’ initial programs included a grocery bus ministries for the elderly, a youth tutoring program and outreach ministries to "alienated" young people. Since it’s inception, MUST has fulfilled Wayne's vision of connecting people who have a desire to help with those who need help the most. Today, MUST encompasses more than 10,000 volunteers who are continually helping MUST Ministries achieve its goal of being Georgia’s most respected servant-leader. 

The prolonged economic recession has forced millions of Americans into poverty, with nearly 15 percent of the population – or roughly 46.7 million people – living below the poverty line in 2014.  According to the U.S. Census Bureau, that figure is up from about 11 percent in 2000.

Team Reliable is so proud and blessed to give back to America’s needy who struggle to live their daily lives below the poverty line. Reliable Paper gladly donated almost half a truck of commercial kitchen products to update and expand their kitchen facility.  

We concluded our visit with a large case of napkins, and a calling card when stock runs low. Once again, sharing the gift that keeps giving when the need arises.

“I would like for us to do this all year long!,” said Reliable Paper’s president, Brickford Faucette, photographed in the submission above.  “And, wouldn’t it be GREAT if all of our employees had the opportunity to participate in deliveries as well?”  Yes!  Mr. Faucette.  What a wonderful idea that is! 

Please stay tuned as we continue to share our journey into a season of giving with you, our Reliable community.

Your Reliable Team
