STATEWIDE MISSION PROJECT
The mission drive runs from September 4, 2010 through November 13, 2010.
CCEE is spearheading a mission drive to supply dried beans, rice, and new clothing to Haitian families still in need. Our own Haitian family still needs your love, compassion, and assistance along with the ONE MILLION other Haitians families just like ours. They survived the January 2010 earthquake. But, it ripped their world apart.
Church & Community Empowering Enterprises, Inc. (CCEE) is “Rolling Out The Barrels” Again. This time, we are collaborating with the Global Aid Network (GAIN) to ship a container to Haiti.
Please help us feed and clothe our neighbors. More than 1,000,000 Haitians are still struggling since the recent earthquake that killed more than 200,000 of our brothers and sisters in the Caribbean.
