With the new school year looming on the horizon the Summer of Hope initiative provided aid and fun activities to at-risk children in the Polytechnic and Stop Six communities. This initiative brought together twelve local ministries, including Eagle Mountain Church; and Comerica Bank, the Fort Worth ISD and the city of Fort Worth.
“Fort Worth has a tradition of partnerships, and this is one that brings our faith-based and corporate organizations together to improve our children’s chances of success,” said Mayor Betsy Price. “Nothing is more valuable to our city’s future than a strong, educated and competitive workforce. And that starts with our schools and programs like this—The Summer of Hope.”
Summer of Hope partners have hosted sporting events, reading activities and other programs in August that culminated on Saturday, August 13 at the Brighter Outlook Community Center where children received clothing, backpacks and school supplies. Eight children were chosen from a drawing to receive new bicycles donated by members of Eagle Mountain Church.
Thank you, friends and family of Eagle Mountain, for your donations and support. Because of your generosity we were able to help make a difference in the lives of children this school year.
