SPOTLIGHT MISSIONS 2018
We salvage tractor-trailer loads of potatoes and other produce that are rejected by commercial markets or potato chip factories due to slight imperfections in size, shape, sugar content, or surface blemishes.
Usually, these rejected loads end up at local landfills. Through the Potato and Produce Project, the Society of St. Andrew is able to redirect these 40,000-45,000-pound loads of fresh, nutritious produce to food banks, soup kitchens, food pantries, low income housing areas, local churches, and other hunger agencies for distribution to the poor.
Redford Brightmoor Initiative builds community and supports youth and adults to prepare for meaningful employment and service.
The Bishop Craig Children’s Village has been in operation since 2000 with primary support from the Detroit, West Michigan, West Ohio, Indiana and Liberia Annual Conferences. The center provides counseling, healthcare, education, and shelter to destitute youth in war-torn areas. In recent months children orphaned by Ebola have found help and hope at the Village.
The mission of the NOAH Project is to empower low income and homeless Detroiters to achieve stability by serving as the first step on the journey to self sufficiency.
