Since starting in the basement of Karen’s home 28 years ago, Irresistible Portraits by Karen Goforth has always given back to our community.
Tithing has always been an important part of the Irresistible Portraits business model. “God has blessed us with a wonderful business and amazing clients that we treat like family. With having a successful business, we want to make sure we give back to our community in any way we can,” said owner Karen Goforth.
CCM thanks Irresistible Portraits for photographing the Celebrate Hope dinner and CCM/SHOE SHOW Golf Classic. This year, Irresistible Portraits worked with CCM to photograph during documentary filming and also donated family portraits for our new homeowners.
Irresistible Portraits continues to be a leader in the community through their charitable donations and non-profit work. The portrait studio is actively involved with several charities and non-profits including Focused on a Cure which was founded by Irresistible Portraits nine years ago.
Karen Goforth has said, “Giving back is something we always plan to incorporate in our business.”
“We should be about more than just selling chicken. We should be a part of our customers’ lives and the communities in which we serve. Nearly every moment of every day we have the opportunity to give something to someone else – our time, our love, our resources. I have always found more joy in giving when I did not expect anything in return.” S. Truett Cathy
Since the first restaurant opened its doors nearly 50 years ago, Chick-fil-A has grown from one man’s vision to one of the largest family-owned businesses in the country. Much of the company’s success has been credited to the stability and consistency within the Chick-fil-A’s leadership team.
Stockton Perry, owner/operator of Chick-fil-A-Concord (across from CHS-NE on Hwy 29) believes in supporting his community and serving others. From donating surplus food to local shelters and soup kitchens through the Chick-fil-A Shared Table program, to feeding victims and first responders after a disaster, they give away food all year long to those who need it most.
Being a Chick-fil-A Operator is about more than serving chicken, it's about having a positive impact in the local community. That's why he finds creative ways to serve by supporting the troops through military appreciation events or fundraisers for local schools; or inviting guests for family events like Daddy Daughter Date Night or Stuffed Animal Sleepover. Stockton is always on the lookout for ways to help our communities. CCM is blessed to have Stockton and his team support our ministries and be the 19th hole reception sponsor for our 21st annual golf classic at the Club at Irish Creek.

One of the many organizations that F&M Bank supports is Cooperative Christian Ministry.

CCM is also one of four food pantries that the bank donates to during the Christmas season.
“Giving back to the community is a huge part of our DNA,” says Steve Fisher, CEO and President of the bank. “Thank you for allowing us to be a small part of what Cooperative Christian Ministry does for our neighbors in need.”
