During this past year, there have been multiple people ask about the possibility of sponsoring a child from the feeding center. If you are interested in sponsoring a child send an email to Deidra at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are two ways to sponsor the children at the feeding center:
Sponsor a Specific Child— $40 per month allows the children to receive school supplies, school uniforms, 3 weekly meals, a 3 afternoons at the feeding center, a birthday gift, a Christmas gift, and one field trip. The afternoons consist of Bible teaching, academic tutoring, English, computers, soccer, basketball, games, art, legos, etc. The children are in the program from kindergarten through sixth grade. Once they finish sixth grade it is the sponsors decision whether or not to continue to pay for their school. They will still be accountable to us for their grades. Some churches, some Sunday School classes, some schools, some individuals sponsor a child.
General Fund for Feeding Center— Obviously $40 per month does not cover the total cost of the daily operations of the feeding center. Some people choose to give various amounts directly to the general fund to cover construction of the building, utilities, salaries for workers, etc. The people who give to the general fund are extremely important to the ministry.
All tax-deductible payments to the feeding center (general and sponsored child) can be made through aglimpseofgrace.com
We strongly believe in ending the spiritual darkness and cycle of poverty is through investing in the life of a child. There are 110 children in the program, but the reality is we minister to 110 families. We are seeing God use the program to reach families with the Gospel.
