As Told to Good360 by United Church of Praise International Ministries, NC
United Church of Praise International Ministries, NC, located in Staten Island, NY, commits itself to welcoming all persons, celebrating the diversity found from different backgrounds including race, economic class, religion, culture, ethnicity, gender, age and physical/mental abilities. We are an interdenominational, interracial and international congregation that strives to show love to individuals and families by offering educational assistance, tutoring assistance to kids PreK-12 and homework help. Our mission is to serve our community through word and treat all human beings as sisters and brothers.
Thanks to this donation from ThirdLove, we received an assortment of bras, cotton plaid and hip hugger underwear. This donation was used by single mothers and low-income families in Staten Island that could not afford these items. Although many don’t believe it, this donation helps solve the issues women and low-income single mothers face such as low-quality underwear. Many of the women in our area are in great need of bras and panties but lack the resources to get what they need. Many women struggle to find under garments that they feel comfortable in, let alone fit their bodies properly. Recently, five single mothers who came into our church were so grateful once we offered them the items. Thanks to Good360 and ThirdLove we changed the lives of these five women in a matter of minutes.
