The Change Campaign: 

Ending hunger makes good sense! Everyone can make a difference in our community especially our youth. The goal of The Change Campaign is for students to raise $5,000 in coins to donate to Elijah’s Promise. The funds will be used to provide meals at the Community Soup Kitchen. Students set up donation jars in their homes, local businesses, congregations and schools to collect coins to donate to Elijah’s Promise. Students can drop off their collections at Elijah’s Promise or mail their donation. Please contact Michelle Wilson for more information at 732-545-9002 ext. 122.
