Pressed Down, Shaken Together and Running Over

Luke 6:38 states: Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

A young girl who started a non-profit clothing closet when she was a preteen is taking huge strides in the donation realm and getting great rewards-“pressed down, shaken together and running over.” Katelyn Darrow-Eystad, 16-year old philanthropist and founder of Angels of God Clothing Closet in Southern New Jersey, got a well-deserved reward from Sharpie and Staples in the form of a $10,000 check to her charity and $10,000 in school supplies.

Katelyn began her clothing closet after her mom and sisters struggled to make ends meet when Katelyn was young. She began collecting and organizing a donation center in Pitman, NJ. Kateyln and her family and friends have been working nearly non-stop since Hurricane Sandy at the end of October and were rewarded greatly for their efforts and dedication.

In addition to the generous $20,000 combined donation, Katelyn received an age appropriate gift, four tickets to see the teen sensation One Direction.
