Board of Directors

Board of Directors 2020

New Co-Presidents as of 2020

 

Lori Moorman – moormanmarket@gmail.com

I joined B.C.C.S. Board of Directors in the Spring of 2011.  We moved to Bedford from Tennessee in June of 2010 to begin cattle farming with family.  My Mother-in-law invited me to volunteer with her at the Christmas Station that December and so it began. I was very impressed with what I witnessed and described it as “organized chaos”, a term that is still very accurate. That first year, I agreed to partner with Patty Brown as a co-department head for CSX boys clothing. Over the past nine years, I’ve served on all our committees, held the positions of Goods Committee Chair, Fundraising Committee Chair, Vice President, and am one of the Station Staffers.

Now, as I step into the position of co-president, I’m excited for what lies ahead for B.C.C.S. and all that we can accomplish for the service of our community using the wonderful assets, talents, experience, and time offered by our excellent team of Board members, Department Heads, Committee Chairs and volunteers!

I have been involved with the Bedford Community Christmas Station since it became an organization in March of 2006 and was one of the original board members. Previous to that time, I was involved with a group of staff members at the Bedford Library who had decided that instead of giving each other gifts at Christmas, we would put our money together to bless someone in need. We reached out to Social Services and were given the name of a child for whom we purchased Christmas gifts.  In March of 2006, I received a letter from Karen Hughes asking me if I would consider attending a meeting with her and other folks who had participated with the Social Services program at Christmas.

When I got to the meeting, Karen presented her idea of creating a new Christmas assistance program in Bedford County that would provide items at Christmas time to low income households. This program would give the opportunity for these families to choose their gifts in a respectful and dignified manner. Everyone who was sitting around the table that day was in absolute agreement with Karen and the result became The Bedford Community Christmas Station, Inc.

During the past 14 years, I have served as co-department head of the boy’s clothing department.  I also served as head of public relations for 3 years, board secretary since 2014, and have served on the fundraising, goods, and eligibility committees. I look forward to working with Lori Moorman as co-presidents of this amazing organization.
