Antioch Foot & Ankle Group
Donates 150 Chairs to Old Savannah City Mission
Savannah, Georgia, November 7, 2013 – Antioch Foot & Ankle Group continues to support the Savannah community by giving back to organizations in need. A few weeks ago, Dr. Jim Dandy, President and CEO of Antioch Foot & Ankle Group, called Director of Development and Thrift Operations, Connell Stiles to inquire about donating Thanksgiving dinner for the Mission. Ms. Stiles was grateful for the offer, but told Dr. Dandy that what the Mission really needed was chairs for the sanctuary.
Dr. Dandy, a Deacon and Chairman of the Trustee Board at his beloved Thankful Baptist Church, said that “sanctuary” was the key word that pricked his heart. A successful businessman in Savannah for 41 years, Dr. Dandy places God first in his life and understands that with success comes humility and the requirement, as a Christian, to bless others. Ms. Stiles picked up a check for over $3000 that same day and ordered 150 new, stackable chairs for Old Savannah City Mission.
On Thursday, November 7th, Dr. Dandy was on hand for the dedication of the chairs. He is also going to donate the carriers to stack and move the chairs as well. William E. Stiles, Executive Director of the Mission and Connell Stiles, both thanked Dr. Dandy for his generous donation and for supporting Old Savannah City Mission over the years. Ms. Stiles said that in the past, often there were not enough chairs to seat everyone during worship. Now the chairs will be used during services, classes, and meals as needed. As the volunteers unwrapped the chairs and arranged them in the sanctuary, Dr. Dandy, who is blind, smiled. He said that giving to others gives him joy and he intends to keep on giving, as God continues to bless him and his practice.
