My name is Christy Miller and I’ve been involved with Buddy Bags since 2017. I became involved because it’s a mission that speaks to my heart. I have a strong calling to be involved in a mission that brings our community together by helping those who need it most. Our family motto is to treat others as we would like to be treated ourselves. I also believe we all go through ups and downs in our lives and it’s best that we help each other and stand together during the down times. I see that attitude and spirit within Community Help Network where I currently serve on the Board of Directors as Secretary.
I’m originally from Lebanon, Indiana and I met my husband, Eric, at Ball State University in 2001 prior to graduation. After living and working in Chicago for several years we started a family and moved to Eric’s hometown of Crown Point to be closer to some of our family and to our small family-owned business. We work together at the Eric Miller Allstate agency located on Summit Street in Crown Point. We have two boys ages 11 and 9 who attend a local elementary school here in Crown Point. We are grateful to live, work and volunteer in this friendly community.
