Our annual Christmas Missions Offering – the Big ReGift – aims to raise $35,000 that can be given away in 2018 to our various missions partners.
One of those partners that’s making a huge difference in Knoxville is charter school Emerald Academy. Located in the inner city of Knoxville, Emerald Academy was started just two years ago to reach students in a community where the local schools rank in the bottom 5% of the state. 92% of Emerald’s scholars (aka students) would otherwise be attending one of those under-performing schools.
Our financial support of Emerald Academy will underwrite a field trip for students that cannot afford to attend the trip, in addition to other routine needs the staff and students have throughout the year.
