Exodus Foundation Easter Appeal
The Rev. Bill Crews on March 6 officially launched The Exodus Foundation’s 2012 Easter Appeal.
The appeal focuses on the remarkable work the Foundation does in supporting those in greatest need in the community.
“Easter is a time of renewal and that’s what we like to think we do here at The Exodus Foundation”, said Mr Crews. “We go to work each day with the belief that we can help the poorest and the most needy turn their lives around.”
The Exodus Foundation can only do this thanks to the generous support of the public. Every donation is precious, no matter how large or small.
“Some people have been donating to us since we started in 1989,” said Mr Crews. “One couple in particular comes to mind. They recently told me that the reason behind their continued support was because we helped the daughter of a family friend when no one else would.”
Much has changed at The Exodus Foundation over the past 23 years. It is no longer simply a refuge for young people.
Now it helps them finish their schooling, it runs literacy courses for youngsters from the poorest families and it operates dental programs and medical clinics for those in greatest need.
And of course there is the famous Loaves & Fishes Free Restaurant as well.
Throughout the years the positive effect on those in greatest need has grown.
“Here at The Exodus Foundation every day is a miracle because miracles happen every day. Lives get turned around, family bonds are renewed and hope is restored,” said Mr Crews. “That’s why I urge people to donate — so we can continue our important work.”
