Every summer summer at CentriKid Camps we collect a missions offering. Half of the money supports global missions projects with the International Mission Board, and half helps support local projects with the North American Mission Board. In 2013, our local missions project was Graffiti 2 Ministries in New York.
Graffiti 2 Community Ministries seeks to Revitalize, Revive, and Revolutionize the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx and society by enabling individuals to develop physically, mentally (revitalization), emotionally, spiritually, and socially (revival) so that they may become servant-leaders within their families, community, and society (revolution). Originally the plantation home of Gouverneur Morris (penman of the preamble to the Constitution), Mott Haven has become notorious for the difficult urban situations which are faced daily by its residents.
Statistics identify a high density of children who
- Fail to meet education standards
- Live in single-parent households
- Lack adequate nutrition and healthcare
- Reside in a neighborhood riddled with crime.
The money that you gave in 2013 is making a difference. Be sure to check out this video from Graffiti 2 as they say thanks for all your support.
