Wally Wednesday- 86-year-old saves scraps for decades to raise $400K for children’s home


Johnny Jennings is 86 years old, but he first visited the Georgia Baptist Children’s Home when he was 18, and the visit changed his life forever.

A child ran up to Jennings begging to be adopted, and it was in the moment Jennings realized his life’s mission.

Since he wasn’t ready to adopt a child of his own, he decided to contribute financially. Since he wasn’t independently wealthy, he did so by collecting paper and aluminum products and cashing them in for money. That may not sound like it would amount to much, but Jennings has donated more than $400,000 over the past 30 years.

One of Jennings’ favorite events is the church’s annual meeting, which is when he presents his check each year. During this time, the kids who live in the children’s home are also in attendance and he loves the opportunity to spend time with them.



Happy Friday and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
