As announced earlier this week, TownSquareBuzz.com is proud to present its first class of TSB’s Heroes Hall of Fame, which we’ll be introducing over the next week. The honorees are in no order, they are simply deserving of recognition for their good works in the community.
If love makes the world go round, TSB Heroes Hall of Fame inductee Kathy Moore, uses just that to make McKinney a better place. Love is the agenda for her actions. Others consistently use the words servant, compassionate, genuine, faithful, non-judgmental and caring to describe her.
Moore, husband John, and their young daughter moved to McKinney just two years ago, but that didn’t stop her from taking the initiative to jump in and serve, helping to organize a food drive that brought in 3,134 pounds of food, or 2,612 meals for North Texans, during Tucker Hill’s Ghouls on the Lawn in 2011. She began volunteering behind the scenes at Community Lifeline Center (CLC), and soon, desiring to serve the group further, joined the Board of Directors. She lent her leadership skills to planning and organizing CLC’s first fundraising event in 2012.
“From my first introduction with Kathy, I heard a woman’s heart of compassion that desired to serve her community with no intent of being recognized, but whose reward and affirmation was to simply come from seeing things developed, implemented, and shine with success. Kathy has demonstrated her love for people every day as she has served with Community Lifeline Center both as a volunteer and now board member,” said CLC Executive Director Christine Hockin-Boyd.
With a glad heart, Moore pitches in where there is a need for help, volunteering at her church, Chestnut Square events, her daughter’s school and continues to serve at Community Lifeline Center.
Moore isn’t in the limelight. She chooses to encourage, and to love, while doing what needs to be done. Those who serve with her say she is “extremely genuine and humble, with no secret goal of recognition or a desire for appreciation.”
“We love to love on other people,” said Moore, “and hospitality – opening our home to others, is one of the ways we can do that.”
“Life is a team sport and we need each other,” Moore further explained.
McKinney is fortunate to have Kathy Moore as part of our community and we at TSB salute you for your selfless, unheralded service.
More to Come!
