Our group of Shelter Service Volunteers have been busy this winter leading and sharing worship with a special Shelter Service. This service gives us a chance to share our gifts of music and drama with the wider community, as well as support one of our mission partners Ezekiel Community Development Corporation.
Ezekiel provides on-site training to minority firms to create affordable housing for city residents. In addition, Ezekiel partners with Felmers Chaney correctional facility, allowing inmates to build skills and work experience needed for employment following release.
Funds raised will be used to purchase trainee tool kits for new employees, apprentice tool kits for trainees who will continue to train and work in their new field, and welcome-home baskets to provide first-time home buyers with the things they need to care for their new home. In addition, a generous donor has agreed to match every dollar raised!
Our service has been well received and we are happy to announce $2,648 has been collected. With our matching donor, that brings the total to $5,296. Thank you all for your participation and support.
