Mission: Help the underserved population of appalachia and native american tribes of the west and educate american on need for relief in this country
Programs: Weekly distributions of food and supplies to area poor. Traveling to locations through virginia, north carolina and tennesse to distribute aid to the local improvished and their families.
a television broadcast to teach americans about the needs of our own people in america is seen on direct tv as well as other various stations. With this broadcast shelter rock gains support. At the end of each broadcast there is always an offer of a teaching series which is shipped out to the caller.
with our focus being on the children of appalachia and the native american tribes, shelter rock holds large outreach events to serve more effectively. These events normally serve between 500 to 5000 people in one afternoon. We use volunteers and have many donations to offer, including food, clothing, toiletries and gifts for children. This is a very effective way of locating families with children who will continue to receive aid from our mission.
32400 undersearved individuals were given food, clothing and other supplies as well as gifts for children and adults in appalachia. Many donors including patagonia, phillips van heusen, and operation blessing out of virgina beach, virginia make it possible for our staff and volunteers to carry out this mission. Also donated are various gifts from individuals for children.
