Christy's Legacy of Hope is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that benefits orphaned children throughout the world. The late Christy DePriest was a resident of Taylor who was involved in the community in many aspects. She worked with children through the recreation department and Beacon Baptist Church's kids ministries. She passed away from cancer in 2010. Her mother Karen carries on the mission through this Taylor-based organization, which annually offers run/walks, golf and cultural outings to raise funds for the campaign.
