Fall Breakfast Super Successful! 

What an amazing event! A $10,000 matching challenge grant was oversubscribed with $11,510 received and more pledged! Total income received and pledged to date is $21,510! These funds will provide for computers for 17 AIDS orphans now engaged in post-secondary studies, plus help provide critical school fees and assistance to other vulnerable children. Thank you!

Thanks to Jodi Senter and Bonnie Messer for co-chairing this successful event!

The Center for Health and Hope will use funds raised at the annual Gathering To HEAL Breakfast to reach out to help Kenya’s impoverished children and adolescents. Many are unable to attend school, because they have lost their parents to HIV or are too poor to pay the fees. 


 “Children and youth are often overlooked during the global AIDS pandemic,” notes the Center’s Executive Director, Don Messer.  “Many lack schooling and are exceedingly vulnerable to infection from HIV.  Around the world an adolescent girl acquires HIV every two minutes.”
