#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving. Today we have the opportunity to turn our hearts and minds to focus on how we can give back and help others.
We are blessed to be a part of a church with so many opportunities to give back.
Here are two great initiatives you can get involved in:
CLEAN WATER FOR KENYA
Last Christmas we made a miracle happen. We brought the gift of life to an entire region of Kenya. With your help, we can give health and life to ALL the people of Africa. This Christmas season, we’ll strive to make another miracle. This year our goal will be to provide an Uzima Filter for every household to the people of the Lake Victoria islands of Kenya. This remote group of islands is surrounded by water, but none of it is safe by even the lowest standard. Water, water everywhere… but not a drop to drink. But they do drink it. And with each sip comes the possibility of illness and death.
Imagine if 3 children from our church congregation died every month because of the water we gave them…. THAT is the harsh reality in Kenya on just 1 of these islands!
We MUST do something!
We can bring health and hope to the people of Lake Victoria. Each filter we provide brings life and longevity to the families there. $40 will provide one filter.

Christmas Kindness is an annual PRUMC Local Outreach ministry that offers a dignified way for Atlantans in need to share the joy of Christmas with their families. Every December PRUMC volunteers serve more than 2,000 people from Atlanta-area ministries and agencies during the five-day Christmas Kindness event.
The PRUMC Local Outreach team works with our community partners to identify Christmas Kindness clients who would otherwise not have a material Christmas, and who are not receiving assistance from another holiday outreach program. At the Christmas Kindness Shop, PRUMC volunteers welcome clients into the hospitality suite and treat them with the dignity of a personal shopping client in a department store. Parents choose from a selection of new coats for each family member, as well as a new appliance for their family to share and new toys to give to each of their children, thereby reinforcing the parent-child relationship. Individuals from area shelters and housing agencies shop for basic necessities such as coats and toiletries for their own use. PRUMC volunteers are present to take prayer requests and to pray with clients if needed.
