Today as part of #GivingTuesday we're thanking the Payton Foundation. Payton, who is already committed to supporting ZOE’s Vocational Training Program and Learning Centre, reached out to us recently to see if we had 'more immediate' needs, given the Covid 19 pandemic.
Our City Centre coordinators were so relieved to get word that extra funding would be sent. They had already started to help our former ZOE kids (now adults) during this time to buy rice, oil, noodles, milk etc. with some provisions from a local church but knew that they had stretched that money as far as it could go. With approximately 30 of the young adults contacting ZOE desperate for assistance, they weren't sure what they were going to do.
"We are so thankful and thank God if someone gives us more budget to help our kids and people that are struggling."
On May 5, we are participating in #GivingTuesday with millions around the world in giving back, spreading kindness, and showing how together we can be a force for good!
Thank you Payton for helping our vulnerable young adults, you've gone above and beyond and we are so grateful!
