Summer is almost here and Douglass Cornerstone is preparing to take the youth in the Douglass community on an awesome adventure.
Douglass Cornerstone is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established to serve the youth and families of the Douglass Community. The organization partners with Douglass Community Center, local churches, schools, agencies and other non-profit organizations to accomplish its mission of “fostering a commitment to youths and families to promote stability and reassert hope in the Douglass Community.” Douglass Cornerstone provides the following for the youth of Douglas community in the City of Memphis:
- After-school mentoring activities
- Annual youth summer camp
- Monthly soup kitchen for the community
- Referral services to address other dire needs, (medical, housing, employment, counseling, etc.).
Douglass Cornerstone operates on private and corporate donations and grants and our wonderful volunteers and our services are limited without this support.
The board of the organization wants your generous donation as they prepare for their annual summer camp for the youth of the Douglass community. This year’s summer camp will be held at For the Kingdom, located at 4100 Raleigh Millington Rd in Memphis. Douglas Cornerstone would allocate your donated funds to the following:
- Accommodations for 6 Days and 5 nights
- Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
For the Kingdom provides a safe, fun, and challenging camping environment for discipleship, character building, and recreation for inner city young people in the Mid-South. More than other summer activities, a sleep away summer camp experience endows children with valuable life skills, provides positive adult role models, supports them with consistent encouragement, within the kind of well-rounded wholesome environment all too rarely found these days. These are lasting benefits that can make a difference in a child’s life as he or she becomes an adult.
