EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
After working for the Northside Leadership Conference, a coalition of Northside community-based organizations, I had the chance to work with the Light of Life Rescue Mission. Employees and volunteers from Light of Life helped us prepare for the Annual EACC Pumpkinfest for the children of the Northside, and I learned more about their mission.
Light of Life is dedicated to providing a home for the homeless and food for the hungry. I chose to run for light of life because of all the programs they provide, including a men's life recovery program and mental health program dedicated to bringing stability to men's lives. In addition, they work with women and children, providing women with the tools needed to succeed and a nuturing environment for their children.
