This year, our mentors partnered with Dr. Thelma WItherspoon, the PAL of Altantic City and the Westminster Christian Worship Center Project to provide a wonderful Christmas for 25 local families in the community that were in need. We drove to peoples homes and gave the families Xmas food baskets & a cash gift. Families were very grateful.
Eight of the families who received donations had members from our youth program. They were very grateful to be able to have a nice holiday.
We will continue to assist with Operation Xmas annually.

SJRAS & CC SPCA VOLUNTEERING
April 19, 2016
Our youth love animals. It is only natural that we assist the local animal shelters with animals residing there. Interacting with the animals in a positive way helps boost our youths self esteem and confidence. Our youth also get to meet and engage with others who have a similar passion for animals.
Luminary Rising volunteers at the Cumberland County Humane Society quarterly. We encourage everyone to take time out of their month to give back & support the local animal shelter.
