JACK ROPER

Jack Roper here in Blacksburg and our Caring for the Carolinas award winner for the month of September is inside. This is Broad River Baptist Church.

Well, Kelly Davis, you're the one that brought our attention to Donnie Smith and why he does such good work.

KELLY DAVIS, Nominator

My family and I, we travelled with Donnie this past year, it was our second year with him on a mission trip, and as we returned home, I was thinking about the tremendous task it must be to organize 30 people on a construction project with none of us having any background in construction work.

DONNIE SMITH, Award Recipient

This year we went to Ft. Payne Alabama, we had a group that went with us this year, the ages was from 7 years old to 82 years old. In 1985 a Mister Gary Scruggs from Gaffney, he had been on several trips, he come and done a presentation here at our church and that was the first year that I went.

PASTOR DENNIS WILLOUGHBY

It's my pleasure to be Donnie Smith's Pastor to watch his ambition for doing missions and accomplishing what Jesus asked us to do, because people matter to Jesus, and people matter to us, and they matter to Donnie.

JACK ROPER

We do, every month, pick someone that we think volunteers their time to help other people. Donnie Smith of Blacksburg, we think that September's your month, so you win our Caring for the Carolinas award for the month of September. Congratulations.

DONNIE SMITH, Award Recipient

Thank you very much.
