A big part of our ministry focus at Crew + Co is giving back to support missions both locally and around the world. Each year it is such a blessing to give to local and global ministry partners, and every product you purchase helps make that happen! In 2020, because of your purchases, we were able to donate over $60,000 in ministry support. From providing food and medical needs for families in Africa to encouraging camps for young cancer patients in Serbia, your support is making a huge difference!
Camp Hope is a week-long camp bringing joy, hope and community for international families experiencing the toughest time in their lives with a child affected by pediatric cancer. These families come into the first day of camp often feeling abandoned by their own families and friends after receiving their child's heartbreaking diagnosis and leave on the last day with a community and bond with others walking down the same difficult path.
Glenn's ministry typically feeds over 100 widows each month and ferry and assist over 200 medical opportunities in a month. Other uses include acquiring feed for animals including goats for their widows program, and chickens for protein. He is also involved in business training ventures and providing supplies and assistance for the many businesses the widows have started. Crew + Co was able to donate a "new" 1993 Toyota Land-cruiser Prado! Without it, many could not operate at all during the rainy seasons. And even during the dry seasons, the access to supplies is limited as no one has transportation and must pay to have deliveries to our area. Glenn says, "We are so grateful to everyone that has supported us in this and other ventures to serve the “least of these our brethren”."
The Girls Retreat is a place where ladies ages 13-through high school can come together to learn more about Jesus and the importance of studying the Word. The desire of the leaders of The Retreat is to create a space where young ladies can come and be vulnerable with others, themselves, and the Lord. Throughout the weekend retreat, they have small groups, games, and speaking sessions from other ladies who love the Lord. In 2020, Crew + Co was able to support this retreat after learning about the heart behind it from our very own (shipping extraordinaire), Emma Barnett. We are looking forward to doing it again in October 2021!
