 “I was hungry and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger and you welcomed me. I was naked and you gave me clothes to wear. I was sick and you took care of me. I was in prison and you visited me.’ Then the king will reply to them, ‘I assure you that when you have done it for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you have done it for me.” -Matthew 25:35-36;40

Schools and Children

We will challenge and support our schools, transforming students to scholars and empowering teachers, staff, and parents to invest in their future.
