Remembering Jim McDaniel

Remembering Jim McDaniel

Global Gifts is sad to announce the passing of Jim McDaniel, an active member of our Global Gifts community for many years.

Jim served on the board for many years throughout his time with Global Gifts. Some of his service included steering the organization as Board Chair. He was a generous volunteer at the Nora store along his wife Marsha, to whom we send our sincerest condolences. He was also a faithful volunteer at many of our offsite events, spreading the fair trade mission to our broader community outside the store.

Jim was not only an active member of the Global Gifts community but he also gave much of his time to other organizations near to his heart. You could find Jim leading tours at the Eiteljorg Museum, at the First Baptist Church of Indianapolis in the food pantry, children’s center and sanctuary choir, and even eastern Montana where he took part in missions with his church group.

We will miss seeing Jim in the store and we will remember his significant contributions for many years to come.  His passing will undoubtedly be felt in the Indianapolis community and beyond.

You can view Jim’s obituary here. In lieu of flowers contribution can be made in memory of Jim to First Baptist Church, Edna Martin Christian Center or BHI Senior Living Foundation.
