Grandmothers Helping Grandmothers Yard Sale May 24 Parking Lot of Pinehill Church of Christ - 132 Cunningham Road - 8am til Noon

We are very excited to be hosting a Yard Sale on May 24 at our parking lot to raise money for the Grandmothers Helping Grandmothers organization. This organization is part of the Stephen Lewis foundation. We will be working with the SSM chapter. All proceeds from this event will be given to this great organization.

Grandmothers Helping Grandmothers is an organization that works with Grandmothers in Africa that are now in a position to provide both financial and emotional support to their grandchildren as more and more children loose their parents to the horrible AIDS epidemic. With our support, the organization can

1 Continue to fill the gap in services aimed directly at grandmothers coping with HIV/AIDS, through community awareness, educational workshops, support groups and financial assistance.

2 Help with several bursarys that give pre-school children a facility for learning and development while their grandmothers pursue wage-earning activities.

3 Train grandmothers in business and various skill sets.

4 Continue in its wonderful success in supporting grandmothers and great-grandmothers in their unfaltering support of their families in the face of the devastating consequences of HIV/AIDS.
