Opportunity to Support the Second Mile Center
There doesn’t seem to be a corner of our lives that the coronavirus has not affected, and The Second Mile Center (SMC) is no exception. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the cancelation of some of SMC’s indoor programs and outreach services for the children of Detroit, summer mission trips to the SMC from out of state have been canceled and essential fundraising events have had to be redesigned. Thankfully, the pandemic has not stopped the SMC leadership from reaching out to their families whose needs have been exasperated by the virus. They have been on the front lines regularly visiting the children they serve to deliver groceries, goods, crafts and even doing birthday drive-by’s!
The Second Mile Center has been a long-standing partner of FPCP, and we feel especially committed to their needs during this challenging time. Please continue to pray for the mission of the Second Mile Center and if you are able, consider supporting the center through:
Sponsoring the Fitness in Christ Running/Walking/Cycling Event on August 22nd
FPCP’s Fitness in Christ team of approximately 15-20 athletes have committed to achieving individual walking/running/cycling goals while observing recommended social distancing guidelines on Saturday, August 22nd to raise $19,000 to repave the Second Mile Center parking lot. The repaved parking lot will provide a safe outdoor space for the children to gather, play basketball, run and play games which is of paramount importance given the current need for safe outdoor social distancing.
You can contribute either online at fpcp.net/give, through the Give+ App or Give+ Text or by check. Instructions are available at fpcp.net/give. Please designate your contribution to FIC-SMC Parking Lot.
