August 10, 2016
On August 26, 2017, the Life Changers Church and Ministries International, Inc. will once again host an annual event to ensure that, despite tough times and circumstances, children in East Harlem can begin the school year with the basic supplies they need. We have been doing this event for 9 years now. Although East Harlem has many nonprofit organizations that offer social services, it is also one of the areas that have been hit harder than most by the recession. The need continues to exceed the resources available. Responding to this need in 2006, our ministries requested donations from a few individuals and distributed backpacks filled with books, pens, pencils and other supplies to about 100 children. Last year, in 2015, With you help we distributed more than 450 backpacks filled with supplies to children in East Harlem and Porte Prince, Haiti. We fell short of our goal of 500. Our goal this year is to reach nearly 700 boys and girls here in East Harlem and Porte Prince, Haiti. We humbly ask that you consider joining us in this endeavor in make a financial donation to help us purchase the basic supplies and backpacks to give each child. Anything you give will make a difference. THIS IS our Eleventh Year Celebration Anything you give will make the event possible.
