When Christians Are United, Reaching Out to the Needy in One Accord, We’re Serving Jesus in Disguise — Fulfilling a Central Command of Our Lord.
Matthew 25:35-36


Back-to-School-A-Thon 2017

With students in Lee County already starting back to school in the year round program the need is already apparent for what some students will require during this coming school year.

Not only are school supplies needed, but food as well.

With over 68% of Lee County students on Free or Reduced Meal programs the need for support is great.
