Good morning, it’s Monday, November 20th. Today’s newsletter covers stories of community outreach and support. A new initiative called “Engaging Congregations” aims to help children in Black neighborhoods become proficient in reading by the time they enter third grade through tutoring and mentorship programs.
Meanwhile, the Dennis Family’s annual Christmas concert tradition will continue this year with a performance at Tabernacle Bible Church that raises funds for charity and finally, CarePortal is connecting children in need with resources through an online platform that has served over 227,000 children nationwide since its launch in 2015.
