  4. A Feel-Good Story (in the making)

    COVID has affected students across the nation. Last August “Good Morning America” told the story of students in Baltimore who were at home studying on the floor, on their beds, and on kitchen tables.

    The thought occurred to members of DreamBuilders and a local church to build free folding desks for students who needed a place to study. One of their members, an engineer, came up with a design and in one weekend (with massive help from community volunteers), they built 118 folding desks.

    Someone at First Missionary Church here in Fort Wayne was watching Good Morning America and asked, “I wonder if this same need is here in Fort Wayne?” Sure enough, with the help of a case manager at Harrison Hill Elementary, a central city school where there are families from 32 countries, 120 students were identified who might need a desk at home.

    With the help of local cabinet makers, church members, students, parents, and community volunteers, everything is set for assembling 120 folding desks for students in the community.

    This begins on Saturday (March 6). Volunteers are still needed. There is no charge for the desks. To volunteer, go to First Missionary Church’s website at https://www.firstmc.org/ministries/desks-for-students/ and fill out the form.

  5. COMEDIAN THOM TRAN ZOOMS INTO FORT WAYNE

    Los Angeles-based comedian, musician, and U.S. military veteran and advocate Thom Tran comes to Fort Wayne via Zoom March 11 as the keynote speaker for the virtual luncheon of the Northeast Indiana Base Community Council.
    Tran will talk about his experiences and how he used comedy as a tool for therapy after he was wounded in combat.
    In 2010, Tran created The GIs of Comedy Tour, a comedic troupe of troops performing to audiences both military and civilian, bringing the healing power of laughter to those who need it most. You may have recognized him from the shows Larry Charles’ Dangerous World of Comedy, Black-ish, SEAL Team, and NCIS: Los Angeles.

    Since the March 11 event will take place over Zoom, guests can enjoy the presentation from anywhere. In addition to Tran’s talk, the virtual luncheon will offer networking opportunities for guests to to introduce themselves and get to know each other. We will also have performances and messages from people in the local military community. The event starts at 11:30 a.m. EST and lasts until 12:30 p.m. Registration is $5 for members and $10 for nonmembers. Sponsorship opportunities are available as well. Proceeds benefit the Northeast Indiana Base Community Council’s Military Support Fund, a microgrant program for local service members in crisis. Since 2011, the Northeast Indiana Base Community Council has served as a catalyst in unifying the military, civilian and business communities of the 11 counties of Northeast Indiana. The mission of the all-volunteer organization is to create the most engaged military region in the United States through awareness, collaboration, advocacy, workforce development and leadership.
