We cannot believe we just wrapped up year 8 of Armour Up! God has blessed us time and time again with a wonderful staff, amazing facilities and the best kids in the universe! Thank you for participating in our ministry, and for supporting our efforts to raise godly men in the community.
Armour Up is a 501c3 organization and relies on help from you to operate each summer. We appreciate your prayers more than anything, and want to let you know how much we love doing what we do each summer. To continue providing an energetic and meaningful experience for your child, we would appreciate not only your prayers, but also your financial support if you feel so led. We employ a staff complete with an executive director, game coordinators, photographers, videographers, social media coordinators, etc. Our team is incredible and we couldn’t be more proud!! There are two easy ways to donate – one is through VENMO (our Venmo name is @armourupdallas) and the other is to click here and then locate the ‘donate’ button on the front page of our website. If you cannot donate at this time, we would be thrilled if you would commit to praying for this ministry and our leaders. THANK YOU!
We literally could not do this without your support and the incredible volunteers that have stepped up this summer. A special thank you to our sponsors: Lync Cycling, Interior Resources, The Find Auctions, The Duncan Family, Mark Clifton Custom Homes, The McMahan Family, Hamilton & Squibb, Dallas Pain Consultants & The Rhodes Group.
In addition, thank you to the following for feeding our AU CREW: Linda Clifton, Michele Young, Jenny Garberding, Deedee Selner, Kelly Moock, Julie Lippman, Lindsay McMahan, Paige Sowden, Erin Duncan & Michelle Peck.
Thanks to our AU CREW (high schoolers) & our CIT’s (8th graders)! They did an amazing job and we are so thankful for their leadership this summer.(if no video appears, click on the blue title of this post to view content).
We also greatly appreciate the HPHS girls who helped run our AU STORE all summer: a huge shout out to Anna Walker, Sydney Love, Brinkley Brown & Claire Walker!
A few other thanks go out to Will Washington (guest speaker), Coach Randy Allen (guest speaker), Erica Jones (photography), Alex Moock (videography), Tanner Holman (videography), Jesse (front desk), Rony Rivas (games), PCBC and the rest of our support team.
Also, we want to say THANKS to Josh & Lauren Barnard for directing the boys and our social media! They are a dynamic duo and a blessing to our team.
And a HUGE thank you to the parents (that would be you) for trusting us with your son this summer. We pray all the boys have an awesome school year, and we look forward to seeing them again next summer! Thanks again for your support!
Until next time,
THE AU TEAM
