Ratzlaff thrice blessed with giving

Staff writer

Glenn Ratzlaff of Hillsboro is a recipient of a $5,000 gift from the M.B. Foundation’s “Giving Challenge,” which was launched earlier this year to reward generosity by providing people with resources to pass on to others.

Ratzlaff gave away a used Buick he had purchased for long trips and special occasions.

“After reading ‘Irresistible Revolution’ by Shane Claiborne, I felt the Lord asking me to give the vehicle to a family in the community. This family had no vehicle and had a special needs child who needed to get to medical appointments out of town,” he said.

Ratzlaff said he was excited to receive the $5,000 gift and will enjoy using it to help others.

Foundation CEO Jon Wiebe was pleased with the results of the challenge, which distributed a total of $20,000 to four winners to use for charitable causes.
