I am writing you on behave of Moore’s Memorial COGIC. We are a small church in the Klondike community in Memphis, TN. This community is surrounded by violence, drugs, prostitution, limited education, and many other elements that are plaguing the lives of people in the Memphis area. Our church seeks to eliminate many of these barriers by giving back and reaching out to the people of our community. We feed the neighborhood during the Thanksgiving Holiday; give baskets during Christmas, Clothes Give Away and other outreach programs throughout the year. We also prepare food for the homeless every month. We have purchased a home beside our church that our Pastor would like to have as a place where the people in the community can come and receive tutoring, food, clothing, start a GED program, and counseling. These are just some of the things he has in mind. In order for that vision to take place, the house has to be up to part. When we brought it, it was a drug house and it has been destroyed in more ways the one. If you could donate anything for our cause, it will be used in a fundraiser to raise funds for the rebuilding and remodeling of this home which will be for the Klondike community. Anything you can do will be greatly appreciated. Please check out our website to see what we are about and the efforts that we are trying to do to make our community and city better. The website address is www.mooresmemorialcogic.org. In closing, please know that we do not do what we do to get recognition. We do it because we love God and we love people. We all have a story. No one knows anybody else’s story until they tell you. We all have had trouble and tribulances, but it takes caring people who are willing to look beyond what they see and desire to help someone in need. We do not know where I journeys could have left us, but someone paved a way of escape for many of us. This is our desire as a church. We can not do it alone though. We understand that we are in a recession, but I know that the smallest of gifts can amount to something extraordinary. Please consider donating into this ministry. It is good ground to plant a seed and when that seed grow, you will be a reason for its growth.
