In an effort to garner financial support and rasie awareness about McKinney’s Community Lifeline Center and the emergency service programs that they provide for residents in need, CLC hosted its second annual Games for Good event at the Flour Mill on Thursday, April 9.
Community leaders, businesses and residents joined in the fun as CLC Executive Director Christine Hockin-Boyd reminded the crowd, “We’re (CLC) here, we need your help.” CLC assists local residents in managing short term crises and helps them navigate their way back to self-sufficiency.
Hockin-Boyd said that she was very pleased with the turnout, especially with the number of new faces, which she said is “very encouraging,” and with the many local business sponsors who supported the event this year.
Hockin-Boyd said, “We have worked hard over the past year to establish relationships within the community and the ‘fruit’ will be revealed in the months to come as we continue to see where those relationships lead.”
CLC board member Bill Williams said, “Everyone — and that is everyone — left in such an animated state. Smiles, laughing: the enjoyment was visible, and palpable.”
Hockin-Boyd echoed that sentiment saying, “It was a fun event!”
