Over the last 40 years, Kirkwood has had so many wonderful people do generous things to serve and advance our community. The past few months, especially, people have wrapped their arms around us and shown their love through various donations, gifts, and other acts of service. We want to begin this series to spotlight and thank these people who have stepped up and gone out of their way to serve our staff and residents because we are so thankful.
Our first Friend of Kirkwood Spotlight is the Grandaughter-in-law of one of our wonderful Hugh Gross – Heidi Elnora Baker! She is an incredible wedding gown designer here in Birmingham, Alabama! Her beautiful brick and mortar, Heidi Elnora Atelier, is on Morris Ave downtown. Heidi graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design and upon graduating was selected for the second season of Project Runway. She is an entrepreneur and very dedicated to giving back to her community, which we are so thankful for! At the beginning of the pandemic, she and her team began to sow tens of thousands of masks for people all around the country!
Hugh Gross is Heidi’s Grandfather-in-law and with him in mind, she generously sowed and donated masks for our community and we are so thankful! Keep sharing your sunshine with the world, Heidi! The Lord is using your servant-heart to bless the lives of so many, including the Kirkwood Family.
