Salt & Light:
Since 2004, we've been connecting families in need with the resources of a community that's been richly blessed. Our mission is simple - to share the love of God by helping those in need. Through our food pantry and clothing closet, we meet the immediate physical needs of families with limited financial resources. But our work doesn't end there. From financial counseling and education that teaches important budgeting concepts to voluntary worship services that feed the needs of the soul, we offer the salt and light that gives our community help and hope.
Susan G. Komen:
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Susan G. Komen is the boldest community fueling the best science and making the biggest impact in the fight against breast cancer. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested almost $2 billion to fulfill our promise, working to end breast cancer in the U.S. and throughout the world through ground-breaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 50 countries.
