ARDMORE, OK -- A non-profit organization just outside of Lone Grove will celebrate its one year anniversary since opening its doors in March.

The owners of this non- profit organization on the side of Highway 70 can't believe it's nearly been a year.

"I feel like it's a blessing from God that we've lasted and that we're here every day," said Margie Roberts, owner of It's from the Heart.

Next week on March 6, Margie, her husband Charlie, and volunteers at the non-profit organization just east of Lone Grove will celebrate their first year anniversary since opening their doors.

Roberts says at times funds were thin and they feared they'd have to close their doors. But continuing support from the community and surrounding area have kept them open.

"It's very rewarding to see the smiles on people's faces and knowing that you've helped just a little bit," said Roberts. "You've encouraged that person to keep going, keep trying."

Tabatha Wilson says It's from the Heart was there when her house burned down last September.

"It was awful," said Wilson. "My house burned completely to the ground and we didn't have anything but a vacuum cleaner."

She says clothes and other items she got through the facility helped her family get through day to day.

"These guys were able to help us with dishes, and curtains, and blankets, and just everything that you can need to set up a household," said Wilson.

Since then, Tabatha has volunteered at the warehouse five days a week and says she will continue to do so.

Roberts say it's been a rewarding first year and hopes there are more to come.

"It comes from the heart," said Roberts.

Roberts says the monetary donations patrons do make for their items go toward rent and utility payments for their facility.

It's from the Heart is open from 9 to 4 Monday through Friday and will celebrate on March 6 with cookies and punch.
