For the month of September 2022, we choose Highland Center Ministries — a partnership of congregations that includes All Souls along with many congregations.
Along with the Highland Blessing Dinner, the Highland Center Ministries’s programs include three clothes closets to assist those who need clothes (The Little Clothesline for infants and toddlers, Maggie Lee’s Closet for children, and Men’s and Women’s Closets).
They also have a partnership with Pelican State Credit Union to offer low-cost hand-up Loans and other banking services to help people stay away from costly and predatory payday lenders.
