I went by the new Ace Hardware at the shops on Montevallo and got some help selecting the right paint for the “Heidi’s Kids” blessing box.
While I was painting the words on the street side of the box someone stopped by for a blessing and someone else stopped to leave some blessings.
Blessing Box is in front of Arts on Crestwood Blvd. It holds non perishable food items on top. The bottom box holds pet foods. Thank you Heidi for letting us be a part of your blessing.
Stock the box and be a part of the Blessing!

Heidi’s Kids would like to present our first annual Angels Among Us Award to Ross and Sharron Graham. This award is presented annually to the person, or company that embodies what it means to be a blessing.

I often refer to Ross and Sharron as the Grandparents of Irondale. They have been here from the beginning, and watched this town grow and become the city it is now. From the very moment I moved my charity to Irondale they have supported us every single step of the way. They are anything and everything Irondale. Anytime we ask for things for the children of Irondale they are among the first to offer assistance. Ross always checks back when the deadline arrives, and he will say “Did you get everything you need for the Irondale children?”

Their hearts do not stop at the city limits though. Early in the year we were setting up a field kitchen to feed the first responders, and victims of the Fultondale tornado. Ross showed up and said "Sharon is bringing food, please let me know if you don’t have enough."

Last year we pushed our storage space at the shop to its limits. I was under a large amount of stress trying to find a building to hold all of our toys this year. Ross overheard this conversation, and offered up an office that they own here in Irondale. This location was ideal for Irondale parents to pick up, and perfect for us. They even helped us furnish the office with shelves to hold all the toys. We did not pay a dime for the space or utilities!

I had the pleasure of meeting their lovely daughter last week as she came by to make a donation in her parents name as a Christmas gift from her sister and herself. I was speechless when I heard that this was their plan as their Christmas gift to their parents. It speaks volumes as to how they was raised, and where the hearts are of the entire Graham family.

The day before the parent pick up, and long after Sharron had finished the boxes for the children they sponsored, Ross came by our office to check one last time. He asked, “Are all of the Irondale children covered?”

Yes, they were, in large part due to you and your wife. ❤️

We are forever thankful for Sharron and Ross Graham.
They are truly a blessing.


Thank you to all that have donated time, monies , participation and appreciation for the Irondale Arts Council. Our continued growth and success in 2021 was due to you!


Let’s send lots of prayers Patrick’s way.


Merry Christmas and Happy Safe New Year’s!
