November 2022 Caring for Carolina’s Community Service Hero

SPARTANBURG, South Carolina (WSPA) – “Well, hi, Jack Roper here with our November Caring for the Carolina’s Community Service Hero award. The lady inside the building, PS I love you, that’s all about adopted children. It’s Kay Kirby,” said Jack Roper, Carolina for the Carolinas host.

Tyler Kirby, Pastor of View Church, said, “Well the ministry here at PS I Love You is off to an amazing start. It sort of started in our church as an orphan ministry, we had a heart for the orphan – my wife and I took in children. And so we didn’t have the support that we needed as foster parents, so we wanted to provide that to other foster parents.

“She started because a lot of kids are in foster care as emergency placements with nothing,” Kay’s daughter Destiney Kirby said. “So as you can see it’s kind of like a shopping experience, they can come and buy the things they need.”

“She sees daily that the children come here broken, because of the situation they are in, they did not cause any of this. But it is part of the healing process,” according to Pastor Tyler Kirby.

Kay said: “We have fostered and adopted two foster children, and I know there are many foster children, just like John Tyler and Andrew, who need love, support and a home. And that’s why I do what I do every day. And it’s really not like a job, it’s like a vocation. You are called to foster and I feel like we are called to care for God’s children.

“We thank our friends at Ingles, Bath Fitter, Unclaimed Furniture and Hamrick’s,” Roper said. “So for November, Kay Kirby is our winner. ps i love you,
