Outreach Committee Information

“Nearly 1 in 5 American Children is officially poor.  That’s roughly 15 million kids. But the number living with a significant deprivation - Insufficient  food, overcrowded housing or lack of access to medical care due to cost - is actually much higher.  According to the latest studies, it’s more like 1 in 3. Why do we tolerate this?”  (from Jeff Madrick, author of Invisible Americans: The Tragic Cost of Child Poverty).

The 4 core agencies that the Outreach Committee works with: Doorstep, Let’s Help, Marion Clinic, Rescue Mission plus our Summer Lunch and Whitson Reading programs all help local children. Our participation in ShareFest each year and the support for the Rector’s Discretionary Fund also provides help for children. Your continued support and donations are most helpful - Thank you!
