Our fundraising goal is to raise $30,000 for 20 computers and other important projects for Anani Memorial International School in Ghana, Africa. We are collaborating with Loving Hands International to carry out this goal, and additionally we will be holding a Book Drive for them to take on their regular mission trip Ghana.
In addition to our overseas fundraising efforts, we will be supporting two amazing local charities. CFV Sweet Kids Camp and Designing Station. With your help we hope to send 5 kids from low-income families to camp next summer and donate $1000 to Designing Station to support their mission in serving individuals and families transitioning from homelessness and fleeing domestic violence with very low income who live in Cumberland and Robeson County, NC. To learn more about these organizations please visit their websites at www.sweetkidswithdiabetes.com/ and www.designingstation.org.
