Come help raise funds to offer safe Christian education for more children in El Salvador where public schools are so dangerous. Currently, our students number more than 50. With additional funding we hope to double our students, expand our tutoring staff and hire a missionary couple to oversee our facilities. Our heart is to provide hope and bright futures to these precious children of El Salvador.
There is no cost to attend or to host a table, but RSVPs are required. You are also invited to help underwrite the event.
For immediate release. Please add to your rotation of community service announcements and/or include on your community calendar. Much thanks, Mary Snodgrass.
EVENT: God’s Promise: A Hope & A Future. Fundraising luncheon for SHIP (Shelter the Homeless International Projects)
PURPOSE: SHIP (Shelter the Homeless International Projects) is hosting its fifth annual fundraiser on October 17, 2017, at noon, at the Hilton in College Station. SHIP ministers in El Salvador in an extremely economically disadvantaged neighborhood. One of the ways that SHIP helps its neighbors is by sending more than 50 children to safe, private Christian schools. But so many more children need the opportunity to leave their dangerous schools. With additional funding, SHIP could easily double the number of children going to school, expand the after-school tutoring staff, and hire a missionary couple to oversee SHIP’s facilities. SHIP’s heart is to provide hope and bright futures to the precious children in the neighborhood where SHIP serves.
SPEAKERS: Dr. Henry Musoma, Mays Business School @ Texas A&M University will be the keynote speaker. SHIP is also bringing two teenage girls to the States who are currently attending school on SHIP scholarships. They will be sharing about the impact the scholarships have on them and their families.
COST: There is no cost to attend or to host a table, but RSVPs are required. You are also invited to help underwrite the luncheon.
RESERVATIONS: For reservations or more information, please visit the SHIP website at http://shipinternational.org/fundraiser/ or call 979-260-7447.
