Thanks to these two wonderful children of God from The Vineyard Church of Baton Rouge. They were affected by the Flood 2016 and someone gave to them during a hard time of their lives. God moved on their hearts to give back to others by being a “Present Help in a Time of Need!”

And Starla Arceneaux, (Volunteer) for Present Help is heading to Beaumont, Hamshire, and Winnie TX on Thursday with supplies and to serve.

Thanks to our new friends from Missionpalooza 2017 of Texas that are here and we are so excited to welcome them to P.O.P. as they volunteer and make a difference in the lives of our Youth & community! #service #serve. This week their missionary team have over 200 people from TX in our city of Baton Rouge. And more than 60 of them are helping People of Purpose with community service projects including helping with our summer camp, organizing our donation center and food pantry, home repair for flood victims, painting our partner charter school, and working on a mural in remembrance of the August flood that changed the lives of many in our city. They are an awesome group of young people that are working hard to make a difference! We are in the process of becoming a partner with the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank to continue serving more food to people in need in our communities. Currently due to such the high demand from our families in need, our pantry is in need of can goods this week and food to serve our families until we have completed the process. Our current supplier isn't able to give as much as they use to which is why we need your help temporarily!!! If you can donate any food or canned goods please stop by our office this week so we can restock or reorganize our food pantry! We are having a "Treasure Sale" this week Tuesday-Friday 9am-2pm. Proceeds will go towards our after-school education program & new building expansion fund. Visit us at 5500 Stumberg Lane, Building #2 Baton Rouge, LA. Please share this post and tag someone!

"DARE 2 DREAM" SUMMER CAMP

YTA “Dare 2 Dream” Summer Camp teaches enrichment, education, and leadership development. We introduce academics, character development, social etiquette, healthy selfie, financial literacy, entrepreneurship, cultural arts, creative writing, sports and recreation. A variety of community role models who will share their own passion and love for kids to inspire the next generation of leaders. Students practice reading, strategic thinking and memorization skills. Develop musical awareness, gain self-confidence, learn to work together as a team and explore their own self-expression. Students discover their talents, take their techniques beyond the classroom, and have a fun, rewarding experience that will last a lifetime.

During the summer, 1 out of 8 kids do not eat properly creating a learning gap due to malnutrition at the start of the school year. Nearly 80% of low income children spend their summer days at home, not in an organized program that offer meals. Kids have trouble getting to summer meal sites due to transportation. Our camp provides transportation to a safe place with food for kids in need to learn and grow mentally, emotionally, and physically.
