Our prayers are with all the families impacted and pray we have helped in some small way. A big thank you to all those that helped with clothing, items, etc. A big thank you to New Beginning, Bishop Sam & Annie Thompson, Clover, SC. We will be making another trip in the upcoming weeks... toiletries are needed, so please help us help our brethren!






DR. GEORGE B. JACKSON TAKES A 273 MILE WALK FROM NC - DC TO HELP SAVE RURAL HOSPITALS FROM CLOSING THEIR DOORS!!

 

 Please help support and go to gofundme!

 Citadel of Faith Christian Fellowship (CFCF) and the Martin Luther King Social Action Committee (MLK-SAC) invites you to become a sponsor of supporting our walker (Dr. George B. Jackson) in a 273 mile, 14 day walk from Belhaven, North Carolina to Washington, DC.

This is a bipartisan grassroots movement to petition Congress to pass measures to ensure the sustainability of rural hospitals in America. The Walk will begin on June 1, 2015 in Belhaven, North Carolina and end on June 15, 2015 on the US Senate lawn in Washington, DC. Rural healthcare is a matter of life and death. People die when that “golden hour” is exhausted and when people have to drive 40, 50 or 60 miles to get to an emergency room, they will not make it. This is truly a matter of life and death.


The primary source of funding is from sponsors like yourself, as we will not receive any government funding for this event. We are trying to raise $3000 that will help our walker in the following: 


1) Lodging each night for walker after a 20 mile daily walk for 14 days

2) Meals each day for walker for 15 days

3) Transportation for walker to return to Thomasville, NC after walk to Washington, DC.

Thank you in advance for your consideration in this matter. If you need any further information about this event go to http://thewalknctodc.com/. We like to thank you again for your donation and your support as we strive together to help build a “beloved community”.

Grace and Peace,
UCU, Citadel of Faith, and MLK
